A funny story happened on the way to the library, just not to me.
My sister was loitering near the donated books at the Baruch College library. In the library’s trash pile, next to the donated discount books, she spied a brand-new shrink-wrapped book and went for it. Books are very important to my family, free books even more so.
Salvaging the book from the trash, she finally got a good look at it: An Introduction to Scientology Ethics by L. Ron Hubbard.
“So, that’s why it was in the trash,” she surmised aloud.
And then thanking the Christians and their Easter holiday for the leisure time to look through books even the library would trash, my sister, the former Wiccan, shook her head and returned the book to the trash bin.
Later it would occur to us: one man’s trash is another man’s religion.
