"The Book Killers have always been with us. Before recorded history they were with us, murdering the scholars and storytellers and mystics of every tribe they ever conquered. They were there when Great Library burned in Alexandria 2,000 years ago. They destroyed the library known as the House of Wisdom when the Mongol Empire invaded Baghdad in 1258. ... In 2003 the United States invaded Iraq .... The National Library burned, and the flames lit the skies for miles around." (11/25/11)
