NEW BEDFORD, Mass. The book returned to the New Bedford Public Library in Massachusetts this week wasn't overdue by a week, a month or even a year. It was nearly a century overdue, and the fine came to $361.35.

"Facts I Ought to Know about the Government of My Country" was supposed to have been returned by May 10, 1910.

Rumor has it that the fine was paid by corporate check drawn on the Oakland Raiders account.

I heard it was paid for using some of the Obama stimulus money

I'm surprised it didn't collect interest.
