Soon we won't have a bookstore but...


I don't mean to sound like a yuppie, go green, tree hugging, Starsucks drinking, anti-gun, liberal, snobby elitist, BUT...


Laredo has something like 5 gun shops, 8 Liquor stores, 2 porn shops, 5 beer runs, over 25 "maquinitas" but...

pretty soon we won't have a bookstore in this town. I'm just saying.

Laredo has never really been a place for culture and knowledge. We prize our carne asada, Bud Light drinking, Little Joe listening pastimes (not that it's necessarily wrong). Reading is not really our forte. I'm just saying...we won't have a bookstore pretty soon in this city. But, honestly, looking around me and glancing around at the population, I'm not that surprised. I'm just saying...

Are you surprised? Leave your comments regarding the pending closure of our only true bookstore.

On-line bookstores never close so not to panic.

It's not so much of the actual physical loss of the only book store in town, but what this move represents of the Laredo Comunity. Laredo takes a step backwards yet again.

I think you might have your numbers wrong when it comes to stating the amount of other types of stores that we have in Laredo. I highly doubt we have that many liquor stores.
