Bright & Early: Kids These Days Edition

Good morning, Nashville. Change is coming to the downtown branch of the Nashville Public Library in February. For some reason they’ve decided that opening a “Teen Wing” with a Wii and four giant plasma TVs in the middle of a library is a good idea. They say they’re doing it to encourage teens to start using the library (but seriously, haven’t these people ever heard of the internet!?) and it’ll be closed in with four walls to contain all the noise. Not to be raining on anyone’s parade or anything, but we sort of have to wonder how many Voluntary Metro Employee Furloughs it’s going to take to fund this thing. Just sayin’.
