Yeah, but what about that cherry tree thing?

Former President George Washington--yes, that George Washington--is in hot water in New York.

The New York Daily News recently reported that Washington owes more than $300,000 in late fees to a New York library.  Reportedly, on October 5, 1789, Washington borrowed a treatise on "the Law of Nations," and a volume of transcripts from the British House of Commons from the New York Society Library in Manhattan.  And, he has yet to return the volumes.

Thankfully, library administrators say they are not actively pursuing the overdue fines.
