It didn't happen in Miami. It didn't even happen in Broward. But we have our own share of very old men, and now consider ourselves warned.

Stuart resident Herbert Johnson, 92, has been ordered to stay out of Martin County public libraries after waging an amorous campaign toward female employees

His offensive included, for one librarian in particular, a letter left on the front desk "containing sexually explicit language stating what (he) wanted to do to" her.

(And just like that, adult illiteracy sounds downright delightful.)

Authorities say Johnson also sent the woman "innapropriate" gifts and letters, which she either refused or destroyed. A second employee reported Johnson made unwanted advances toward her, as well.

A Martin County deputy visited Johnson at home, handing him a trespass warning for all county libraries. As one Stuart resident noted, if Johnson isn't careful, assault with a dead weapon could be next.
