Book 'em Bookman

By Creature

A library cop's work is never done.
Robert Nuranen handed the local librarian a book he'd checked out for a ninth-grade assignment -- along with a check for 47 years' worth of late fees. [...]

"I figured I'd better get it in before we waited another 10 years," he said after turning it in Friday with the $171.32 check. "Fifty-seven years would be embarrassing."

When questioned if he had also failed to return a copy of Henry Miller's Tropic of Cancer, Mr. Nuranen denied any knowledge.
