I liked how one of the signs had a note about the bookshop cat, and how they'd found a nice house for her. I always like businesses with a cat, it's a nice touch.

Sad to see so many nice looking, (mostly) small shops going.

Irreplaceable. And gone forever.

Everything else is closing, off-shoring, or out-sourcing, why not bookstores? Maybe if they had the moxie like bloodsucker banksters and health insurance cartels, they could ask for bail-outs from the government? Then again, bankers and other parasites only treat the government as their own personal "help" when not funding groups to see the very same government as the embodiment of evil. Ah, America, will your contradictions and idiocy never cease?

I guess I'm a wee bit jaded at this point. But I'm used to the good being ground into oblivion and the forces of evil triumphing over and over and over again. Bookstores are only the tip of a very massive iceberg.
