Everyone knows that George Washington couldn’t tell a lie. What you probably didn’t know is that he couldn’t return a library book on time. From the article: “New York City’s oldest library says one of its ledgers shows that the president has racked up 220 years’ worth of late fees on two books he borrowed, but never returned. One of the books was the ‘Law of Nations,’ which deals with international relations. The other was a volume of debates from Britain’s House of Commons. Both books were due on Nov. 2, 1789.”
