There was a waived library fine listed on a waive sheet we use at the front desk. The amount listed as being waived was modestly large for us, $65 or so. Next to the amount, in parenthesis, was written the word "Deceased".

I recognized the handwriting of the person who waived this fine and went back to talk to them. "I see you waived $65 for a person who died." I said.

"Yes." They replied with a hint of trepidation.

"How do we know they didn't just die to get out of paying their library fine?"

If you were wondering, yes, you should comment. Not only does it remind me that I must write in intelligible English because someone is actually reading what I write, but it is also a pleasure for me since I am interested in anything you have to say.

I respond to pretty much every comment. It's like a free personalized blog post!

One last detail: If you are commenting on a post more than two weeks old I have to go in and approve it. It's sort of a spam protection device. Also, rarely, a comment will go to spam on its own. Give either of those a day or two and your comment will show up on the blog.
