I'm not sure the case of the missing sonic will ever be solved.
However, the Iowa City Public Library for unclear reasons decided not to press charges and took our word that we turned it in. Wow, thank you ICPL! Now, if we buy the game it will be for ourselves and not the residents of Iowa City, although that would have been admirable.
As for the game itself, I enjoyed it. However, I prefer the traditional sonic mode with running obstacle courses than the "were-hog" (like werewolf) levels.
On another note, my research presentation went well today. I by far had the most questions which means people understood and were interested in my project. One professor even asked me to present in the freshman evidence based dentistry course this afternoon. She seemed very excited about my project. I will have to rush from my last board computer test to get there but I am glad my research may have an impact.
