Your tax dollars at work: King County Library System is the proud owner of 64 copies of Hot Tub Time Machine. Now, you can debate the merits of our libraries carrying large video collections, but there’s no debate that this is a frivolous use of money.
- Why can’t people who want to watch Hot Tub Time Machine go to Netflix, Blockbuster, or rent the video on demand?
- Why is the government competing with private companies to provide this service?
Here’s a scarier fact: The waiting list to watch Hot Tub Time Machine is 516 people long. Come on, people! There are plenty of copies of Schindler’s List available. (Or 147 copies of Paul Blart: Mall Cop)
