Angry all the time

Bill Maher was talking last night about all the people who can’t afford to get divorced, and how stressful it must be. Which reminded me of this Bruce Robison song (performed with his wife Kelly Willis):

Borders

Our downtown Borders is closing. Too bad, bookstores are wonderful places — not to mention, it’s a blow to the singer-songwriter circuit, whose members could always count on Borders gigs to boost sales.

But in past years, I didn’t go to Borders to buy books. I bought greeting cards and gifts, but not books. It was too expensive compared to Amazon. I would have been just as happy to transfer my online book-buying habit to Borders, but they didn’t try to compete. (And yes, I know I “should” be buying from Powell’s, but oh well. I shouldn’t be eating TastyKakes, either.)
