Another incidental big-media librarian mention, along the lines of what sorts of people vote for whom, from the New York Times.
There are two sorts of people in the information-age elite, spreadsheet people and paragraph people. Spreadsheet people work with numbers, wear loafers and support Republicans. Paragraph people work with prose, don’t shine their shoes as often as they should and back Democrats…. For librarians, who must like Faulknerian, sprawling paragraphs, the ratio of Kerry to Bush donations was a whopping 223 to 1. Laura Bush has a lot of work to do in shoring up her base. emily
