I heard on the radio a report on a library in Washington State which has
enacted new policies on behavior not permitted.  I didn't get the complete
list, but items I caught included

    indecently exposing oneself to another patron in the stacks
    illegal sexual activities

More interesting than the list itself is the thought of what *isn't* on
the list.  Is it okay to expose oneself to another patron in the
magazine area?  What about sexual intercourse between consenting adults?
(Maybe they placed the Kama Sutra in non-circulating reference...)
