"Kind of sad" "These sorts of movies do pull in the tourists"

Yes. It's so cute when the interests of someone of lower intellect are stimulated by popular culture. Our superior appreciation of the arts is often debased by the hordes of these unwashed. The mere idea of tourists being in our hallowed collections can be such a bother to, we, the sincere patrons. I'm sure the great amount of time you spend wandering the halls of the Library of Congress in pursuit of your vast interests are spoiled by this rabble....

Letís not look down on discovery. No matter its origin.

@2,

Have you been to a movie lately? If those people can't keep their yaps shut during a movie, they certainly won't do it in any library.

Remember, if you hear a cell phone ring and someone starts talking loudly into it, it's ok to rip it out of their hands and throw it against a wall.

Other library patrons will thank you.

If you walk around in Boston after midnight and you're of any color, the most that will happen to you is no one will acknowledge you or make eye contact

@5, that's also true of Boston in the daytime.

It freaked me the fuck out when I moved to Seattle and people I didn't know would start talking to me at bus stops or on elevators. Total strangers around here will tell you their medical or romantic history out of the blue, the kinds of things that people in Boston would never discuss with family members who live in the same house with them.

Also, the hugging and touching *shudder*

and people from Boston who've lived here for years have told me that everyone's too polite/passive aggressive here...and that Boston folks will be up front and say what's on their mind

which I totally disagree with

I'm a Philly-area guy, so I don't know what there is to say about me except for my love of processed meats

@7, Interesting, maybe Boston's changed since I lived there but people I knew never said anything that was on their mind, unless you mean feeling free to tell someone off or yell at someone.

People here are extremely passive/aggressive, though, as opposed to defensively aggressive/offensive. They don't "get" sarcasm here, either.

Random comment on the movie: When the agents run into the LoC to apprehend Nick Cage they're carrying no guns, but instead are just pointing their fingers at him:

Pretty awesome.
