Detectives in Louisville, Ky had to bring in a special deciphering expert to decode the notes found at the scene of a mysterious set of books. The books appeared to be linked to a previously unsolved crime.

The expert, a diminutive blue-haired librarian, identified the notes at the scene as "cursive". The style of writing, once taught to students from the third grade up as "penmanship", had been a victim of the budget cuts during the Reagan era. This expert also taught penmanship at the local school for two decades, so it was logical that she would be the one to assist the police in determining what is in those notes, and whether or not there was any relevance to the underlying mystery the police are trying to solve. She refused to give us her name, although it could have easily been discovered--we'll respect her privacy.

Once decoded, the notes contained--surprise!--nothing but a grocery list and the household honey-do list for the prior owners of the books. No word on the role of the books or the nature of the underlying mystery.

The story above is a satire or parody. It is entirely fictitious.
