Bookstore Blues

I used to love nothing better than spending hours wandering through large bookstores.
Yesterday, I spent some time browsing the three-story Borders Books in downtown Chicago. Despite looking fairly extensively (though not asking), I was unable to find any books about the drug war. However, prominently displayed on the main floor were “nonfiction” books by Michelle Malkin, Mark Levin and Glenn Beck.
I realize that Borders is just providing what the customers want, but that’s even more depressing.
Speaking of the Blues, I was privileged to hear Shun Kikuta play blues guitar (with J.W. Williams) at Kingston Mines on Monday night. Damn!
A thought that went through my head while I was at Kingston Mines… Any plan involving the legalization of marijuana really, really, really should consider accommodating blues and jazz clubs.
