On another note about Lemony Snicket: this year, the American Library Association approved a new award:
The Lemony Snicket Prize for Noble Librarians Faced withAdversity. "The prize will be a generous amount of cash from Mr. Snicket's disreputable gains [$3000, plus up to $1000 travel], along with an odd, symbolic object from his private stash, and a certificate, which may or may not be suitable for framing."
If you are facing adversity (particularly of the intellectual freedom variety), consider nominating yourself!
