Library protocol

As the tyres on my car were (not) being rotated today, I went to the local library for an hour to wait.
Whilst there reading a paper I heard tearing and looked out of the corner of my eye to see an elderly man obviously deciding that he had a right to remove a funeral notice from the paper. I guess he twigged that he had been caught out and stopped.
He got up and I assumed that he had decided that he could photocopy the entry and nto destroy public property.
I wasn't too surprised when eh came back five minutes later, looking as guiltless as anything. But carrying a ripped piece of newspaper in his hand.
He would of course be one of those who would tell us that young people had no proper respect any more.
Am I the only one left.....?

I am not quite sure why I shouldn't walk in front of any catapults. But I'll bear the advice in mind.
