    Too many in this country feel the Constitution should include the 2nd Amendment. And nothing else.

      and some at the used store just down the road on the corner, on the opposite side of the street from Cody's...  don't remember the name.

      there were several bookstores in SF that I frequented.  i used to live several blocks from Aardvarks in SF and was in there probably weekly.

      AL's Comics in SF also got me into japanese manga and graphic novels.  (now closed)

      now i am temporarily situated in Long Island, NY.  have visited the Strand in NY, but it's so big...

      mainly buying books online from Powells these days and going to the library since my books and shelves are still in storage pending my next temporary final resting place.

      Deserves it! I daresay he does. Many that live deserve death. And some that die deserve life. Can you give it to them? Then do not be too eager to deal out death in judgement. For even the very wise cannot see all ends. - Gandalf the Grey

          I remember I bought a copy of John krakauer's under the banner of heaven (or is it god) about the history of the mom on church there.  I also bought a book about a guy who made a fortune counterfeiting embarrassing documents about the Mormon church and selling them to the same church.

          Good stuff.
