I believe that there is no harm whatsoever, in expressing the desire for a
given result.  In this case, as I stated previously, I do not think some of
the writings prudent or necessary, however, I believe that the petition
itself is quite an acceptable outlet for library users to vent their
frustration.  Any insults, threats, vulgarity, of course, would be totally
inappropriate and counterproductive.  However, I believe that we have the
right, and, yes, the responsibility, to judiciously express concern or even
outrage when we believe it necessitous.

Karen, the freedom to do something is different from the prudence of doing
it.  Of course, anyone is free to make a petition for anything, but is this
prudent?  A petition can be a powerful tool, but if it is not applied with
critical care, it's power can be so diluted it no longer serves a rational

So far, we do not know if there is a serious problem, until we do, prudence
would dictate restraint.
