Turns out Politics and Prose is for sale.
"Authors, book industry insiders and longtime customers reacted with concern to news of the sale. One tweet read: "Oh no. Dismay." Novelist and journalist Jim Lehrer, who has often promoted his books at the store, said that "putting Politics and Prose up for sale is like putting the Washington Monument up for sale."
Sounds like a spot that's ripe for a bailout.
With any luck, they'll find someone who will keep the shop in good stead.
Maybe someone who can find a way to make a buck off ofthis.
