    Best libraries but not the best users 

    Ohio boasts the best public libaries in America. They didn't earn this rating because of users such as James Pengov, an Elyria resident who has gone to court to try to stop the Elyria Public Library from showing Michael Moore's Fahrenheit 9/11 and its critical counterpart FahrenHype 9/11 before the election. Pengov doesn't get it. Libraries are cathedrals for the free exchange of ideas. He presented his to the Elyria librarians concerning Moore's movie and, to be fair, the librarians added FahrenHype 9/11 to the bill. Not satisfied, Pengov went to court, but did so so sloppily Lorain County Common Pleas Judge Mark Betleski doesn't have to address the complaint until it is made right. Oh, yeah, Pengov is the same guy who tried to sell his vote on eBay.
