      that there will now be Scientologists at all of those libraries, just to take the book out, and not give it back.

          Church of Scientology gets privileged Met police info | Metro News

          The Metropolitan Police have given the Church of Scientology privileged information security according to reports.

          A freedom of information request found the Met is giving the controversial church, of which Tom Cruise and John Travolta are devotees, information on safety matters.

          The sect, founded by science fiction writer L Ron Hubbard, has previously entertained City of London officers on several occasions.

          Critics fear the move is an attempt by the group to gain respectability.

              That's not the article I was actually looking for. There was something about a senior policeman cutting the ribbon on the oficial opening of their new central London offices/Church/temple/Asylum, But it's only a vague memory of scandal, so I may be imagining

      •  When you donate (2+ / 0-)

        ...donate multiple copies; it makes it more worthwhile for the library to catalog that way.  Explain that it's going to be a target for theft and suggest it be shelved on the "reserve shelf," for use within the library.

        America, we can do better than this...
