Comic fail [May. 7th, 2010|08:02 pm]
Two-bit argosies of blood and wonder

Via the ever-excellent Comics Curmudgeon: the strip Hi and Lois makes the hilariously boneheaded assertion that pinko libraries destroy private industry, totally ignoring the fact that libraries have long existed side-by-side with mom and pop bookshops. Furthermore, I would assert that by encouraging literacy, libraries and book stores help each other, not to mention the fact that someone just dying to get their hands on the latest novel from the James Patterson factory isn't going to wait months for their name to rise to the top of the hold queue. Not when they can just pop down to Borders for a copy off of the giant floor stack.

Is there perhaps... anything *else* going on these days that might account for little shops going under?

I blame gays and feminists for the deterioration of public libraries. I'm pretty sure the Mormons have something to do with this too.
