Barnes and Bushies

As I was leaving Barnes and Noble today, preparing to head for the cash register, I stopped by the Current Events table. With one or two exceptions, it was completely Republican. Swift boat liars, wall to wall.

I mentioned this to the nice people at the nearby customer service desk. They said it was company policy -- there was nothing they could do.

I thanked them for reshelving the books I was planning to buy, and left.

I'm glad to see that a recent article in The Guardian finds the internet has actually helped a number of British independent booksellers.
