          Good to see another Buffy fan on-line.  Of course I have a personal
interest as I was the librarian at Torrance HS, where Buffy is taped, for 18
years.  So I was Giles.  I met Angel once on an airflight, but my real crush
is Willow, that ideal student who can take over for a dead teacher or brew up
a Wiccan spell in an emergency.  Her innocent intensity is a delight.
          I can assure you that is not the THS library they show on screen.
Ruth Pearson created a wonderful collection and helped design the building.
It was a marvelous facility within which to do the kinds of things we did
back in the 70s.  Media production, video production, cross-subject projects,
with huge budgets and five people on staff (two credentialed librarians).  It
could hold six classes at one time, though I usually limited it to four.
          Unfortunately THS turned into the HellMouth when they got a new
principal in the 80s.  I was one of many who bailed and found life elsewhere.
 I see the girls are moving on to college, just as the 90210 folks did after
they were done with THS.  There's supposed to be a spin-off with Angel (and
Cordelia?) but I can't picture that so far.  I love the show for its writing
and humor.  Buffy Night at the Moore household is a religous experience -- I
even turn off the Dodgers!  Though it was a bit creepy to hear the Mayor use
that "trenchcoat" comment last night.

I don't fancy the next two weeks trying to get Librarian out
 of the carpet.         -- Spike, from Buffy the Vampire Slayer.
