Library cancels rowdy seniors' group

Delray Beach, Fla. -- About 60 senior citizens protested at a Florida library where a 10-year-old weekly current events discussion group was canceled after a heated incident.

The seniors gathered Tuesday at the Delray Beach Public Library to protest the cancellation of the weekly group without discussion leaders being consulted, the South Florida Sun-Sentinel reported Wednesday.

Library officials said the group had a history of unruly behavior, including frequent shouting matches and a fist fight in the parking lot.

Library Director Alan Kornblau told the seniors Tuesday the "last straw" was an argument at last week's meeting that ended with a woman displaying her middle finger to a man with a differing opinion.
