Someone at the library vandalized their copy of FO-C&L Rick Perlstein's Nixonland. Scrawled in pencil: "This book is full of lies about Nixon! Nixon was a good man." And the blurb on Perlstein's next book: "The Author is a COMMIE!"

I suggest the librarians investigate the exact whereabouts of Pat Buchanan at the time of the incident. ;)
