    At the city library, shelves lined with countless books
    To place the symbols on the page ‘tis harder than it looks.
    Travel back a thousand years to China and Bi Sheng
    Innovation, moving type, the ease that it did bring.
    .
    Ideas put to paper, metal pieces moved around
    Eventually came Gutenberg with a new press to astound.
    Humankind, imagination, discoveries change the earth
    Printing Press. Sextant. Medicine. Ponder their vast worth.
    .
    Long after the wood block prompted thinking in reverse
    Hot metal typesetting transformed the universe.
    More can read. This plants a seed. Vast idea dissemination
    Revolution in the sciences. Knowledge democratization.
    .
    These days to some the tomes upon the shelves seem antiquated
    Basking in the glow of screens, easy to feel satiated.
    Paper, ink and binding: an experience tactile
    Wonders of the printed page commonplace yet all the while
    .
    There is a book never returned, a rarity it seems
    Robbing the Rails in Jimmy’s hands: stuff of criminal dreams.
    .

    A historical retrospective by Henry Wadsworth Pequod.
    Another entertaining submission.

    Trying to figure out why Jimmy’s cohort looks so familiar,

    Could that be Frank Fontaine as Crazy Guggenheim? Joe the Bartender knows Crazy. Maybe Crazy will show Jimmy his latest Top Cat comic book, or sing him a song.

    A sweet trip thru history,
    leaves us with a mystery
    on who took the Gold,
    and then got away cold.

    Another winner Sir PeeQ !

    How are they conveying the cargo out of state?

    @fredville (yesterday)
    Right…….they’d borrow the book under their own name. Smart enough to steal a billion in gold, but too dumb to steal a library book…


    Who says they didn’t steal the library book!?

    Notice that the book has been missing for over 10 years? I wonder how long this crime has been contemplated, just waiting for a train with such a valuable cargo.
