This is a great time for people fulfilling old obligations. Hot on the heels of Don Carmen’s crusade to answer his old fan mail, we have the AP story of Robert Nuranen, a Michigan man who was going through some family papers when he discovered a library book he had checked out as a ninth grader. He returned the book, Dorothy Clarke Wilson’s “Prince of Egypt” —47 years late— and duly paid his overdue book penalty of $171.
He said that the book helped him get an A on his assignment, and now it gets him an A in ethics from the Scoreboard.
