“FBI Visits,” from Library Juice.

;I just had a visit from two FBI agents who requested that I pass the word along on the library listservs. Apparently, our bookstore received a donation from who-knows-where of a book that is still a classified government document. The bookstore sold it for 10 cents to someone who, not really knowing the significance of the book, put it up for sale on E-Bay for $3.00. The FBI actually has a watchgroup monitoring E-Bay and they contacted the seller and confiscated the book (don’t know if they paid the $3 or not!). The agents wanted to know if there was any way we could track who donated the book. Well, naturally, we have no idea, and the agents expected that answer.
