Yesterday I learned that the Library of Congress recommends for Dewey placement:

Pirates are filed under True Crime.

Lewis and Clark are filed under Travel (next to books like guides to hotels in the Western states).

  1. The Pittsburgh Pirates are a bad baseball team, but I’d hardly consider their play criminal…

  3. This kind of reminds me of that library scene in _The Shawshank Redemption_, when one the prisoners suggested that _The Count of Monte Cristo_ be classified under education because the book is about a prison break.
