We had fabric bookmarks with a slit for holding a pencil or pen way before this thing was patented.

I have to say, I'm amazed at what is patentable.

You can patent "anything under the sun that is made by man," but you'd have thought this particular gem would have been obvious in 1989.

Likewise you'd think U.S. Pat. No. 5,839,168 (http://www.google.com/patents/US5839168)http://www.google.com/patents/... would have been obvious in 1998. DONT_KNOW
