Library Books Returned 47 Years Late

Have a read:

Return those library books!

A copy of Eldridge Cleaver’s memoir “Soul On Ice” was due back at the Eureka Valley branch Dec. 9, 1970, making it 47 years, four months and 29 days late. The library’s late fee would’ve been $1,731.70 if it didn’t cap the fine at $10.01.

The San Francisco Chronicle reports the paperback’s cover is detached from its spine and there’s a hole in the title page.

Branch manager Anne Vannucchi told the Chronicle last week she’d like to know who the library patron is so she can get the story behind the returned book.

Valet Gives $300,000 Ferrari Keys to Wrong Guy

A problem almost no one can relate to: The valet hands the keys to your $300,000 Ferrari to the wrong person.

It happened in July at the Vinoy Renaissance St. Petersburg Resort & Golf Club, according to police, who ended up arresting the man and woman who drove off in it.

Now, the owner of that yellow 2014 Ferrari 458 Italia Spider has filed a lawsuit against the Vinoy and its parking operator, 717 Parking Enterprises.

The lawsuit and St. Petersburg police report tell the tale of how a brightly colored Italian sports car worth six-figures was stolen with apparently minimal effort.
