"A lot of little old librarians..."

Extra! Dewey Decimal System Creates Storms in Florida (or)
Seinfeld and Melville Dewey Produce Perfect Storms
OK so State Sen. Ronda Storms (FL) has a problem with Dewey. Hey, she has a point. The classification system that public libraries use isn't always intuitive and sometimes it's downright frustrating. I mean, should Recycling at Home (363.7282) really be that close to Cannibal Killers (364.1523) or Discovering the Vernacular Landscape sharing a shelf with Reluctant Metrosexual? People are always picking on poor Melville, but really, LITTLE OLD LIBRARIANS?
