Some people are just obsessed with the shadowy figure(s) behind the Annoyed Librarian. This bold wag claims finally to have unmasked the AL and asserts that the Annoyed Librarian is written by none other than Michael Gorman – the brilliant, talented, former ALA president, critic of silly blog people, and author of several acclaimed books making significant contributions to the field of librarianship, including Our Enduring Values, The Enduring Library, and the recent Our Own Selves: More Meditations for Librarians (all, you should note, available for purchase from Amazon.com). You think you’re soooo smart, don’t you, Mister Man? Well, let me tell you, despite the coincindence that Michael Gorman and the Annoyed Librarian are never seen in the same room together, Michael Gorman does not write the Annoyed Librarian, and you can’t prove that I do…er…that he does. So there!
