While reading an outline of ALA's comment to the FCC rulemaking
process related to the telecommunication law (yawn and another cuppa
coffee), I came across an interesting phrase which may or may not fit
into this discussion. It is wordy, high-faluting, and I dare you use it
in a conversation:

" Particular benefits include:
-- Libraries will directly increase the market
demand for specialized information services
by concentrating sub-threshold individual
demands in the community; ..."

Convincing the producer/distributer of a fine piece of video to
create a "more reasonable price" "'cuz folks might like it after they
see it at the library, and they'll never see it otherwise" seems more
down to earth and rewarding than mouthing "concentrating sub-threshold
individual demands ..."
