Just a reminder, it's not too late to enter. Just submit your photo to scottdouglas@scottdouglas.org.

Thanks to Judy for this!

This reminds me of an incident we just had at the law school library where I work. A patron had on a Western-style outfit that included a Stetson-style hat, tight jeans, boots, big buckle...and a large, holstered hunting knife. I had to gently remind him that a knife is a weapon, and weapons are not allowed in the library. I didn't say, "Especially when the knife has no utilitarian purpose other than gutting."

It's funny, though, because our assistant director mentioned how many people walk into the federal courthouse near us, set off the metal detector, and are like, "Oh yeah, I have a knife on me!" Apparently people get so used to carrying a knife around that they forget about when it isn't such a great idea.
