Professor Greedy or Professor Diligent?

How many books should a professor be allowed to check out of a university library? 350? Not enough for this guy. He had over 750 checked out at once before the library lost its collective (eh? eh?) mind and banned him from further withdrawals until he started bringing things back. Sounds bad, right? Well, what if he’s 65, unused to modern research, and mostly digging into books that haven’t even been digitized anyway. Tough call. If you keep reading though, you find he comes off as a bit of a dick, screaming at librarians, etc., and his email signature alone is worth a slap, so I don’t know what to think here. I have very little sympathy these days for privileged old men who throw tantrums when they don’t get their way. I’m sure Solomon could have solved this by cutting him in half or something, but I’m no Solomon.
