Tuesday Article: Powell's workers

Border's isn't the only bookstore having problems; Powell's is laying off workers as well. What amazes me about today's article is how positive some of the people who have just been shit-canned* still are about books. I salute these people.

Oh, and go check out the Survival of the Book blog; in particular, if you need a laugh (a laugh based on "ha ha that's sad," but a laugh nonetheless), watch some of the videos they've been posting there.

*Any copyeditors out there? "Shit-canned" or "shitcanned" or "shit canned"? Yes, I know I could check dictionary.com or get my ass out of my chair and consult my own 11th edition of Webster's Collegiate dictionary, but it's more fun to ask.
