The chilluns haveth nary a script to read upon

Dang! Laredo, TX's last bookstore (a crummy B. Dalton) is closing down! With almost a quarter million population, Laredo will soon become the largest book-less US city.

Now I feel like an asshole for posting what I posted yesterday. I'm like some...Henry VIII, gorging on literary turkey legs, while the less fortunate Texans till the barren soil of the books I own but haven't read.

Was Henry VIII the one that ate turkey legs? Does this metaphor make any fucking sense at all?

Let's see in the comments...
