Today was kind of a strange day overall at the library- is it a full moon? I need to check. The oddest and craziest event happened a little after Noon. A regular patron- an elderly man who comes in to read the newspapers came in. He looked over the cart of used books we had for sale and brought a book up to the desk to pay for it. The book was on outhouses. Interesting topic- but that wasn’t what spooked me. Out of nowhere he says “I am starting to think Hitler had the right idea as far as the Jews were concerned.” I thought maybe I heard him wrong- but I didn’t have to ask him to repeat it because he did “I am starting to think Hitler had the right idea as far as the Jews were concerned.” I turned and walked away and tried to look like I had something to do. He then got a paper and sat down at a table with another elderly man. I heard him say the same thing to him. Soon after the other fellow got up, put his newspaper on the rack and walked away with the one man still rattling on about something. Is there something wrong with this gentleman? Where did that come from? I certainly hope there is something that can explain this- a medical condition? He does come in regularly but usually gets the newspapers- reads them and leaves. He has never checked out a book or anything else. I don’t know.
