It ain't easy being virtuous

Ah, the Onion.
Speaking truth to...well funny is funny.

'Reacting to news that independent outfit Shaker House Books had closed Monday, longtime customer Stephanie Brear said she couldn't believe she "flushed seven years down the toilet" patronizing the local store. "I put so much time into supporting my quirky local bookshop, with its charming window displays and us-versus-the-world attitude, and for what?"

For what it's worth, I have a similar relationship to lots of small shops, but I'm not under any illusions about much.
