Out of the blue last week a librarian at the Central Rappahannock Regional Library called Anto and I asking if we’d let our son Miles speak to the Fredericksburg City Council about the benefits of their continued support of the library. (As an aside, one of the greatest treasures of Fredericksburg is the local library system, and as unschooled feral learners our children are there all the time, and it rules.) We were honored on Miles’s behalf and we agreed. So last night Miles got up in front of the the city council to talk about the benefits he gets from their continued support of the best library system around. It was an awesome moment as a parent—forgive my indulgence, but this is my blog damn it! What’s more, there is a nice surprise 45 seconds in.
