During a visit to the new 1430 Park Avenue (off South 14th Street) Story & Song Bookstore & Bistro the other day I found it to be an inviting place to browse for books, have a light lunch, a glass of wine, craft beer, or cup of coffee. Pastries are available and tables set up amid the book shelves so folks can eat, drink, browse, and read. The building is bright, comfortable, and cozy. I was delighted to meet several folks there I know and was equally pleased to see so many kids shopping for reading material.
As a result of the Parkland, Florida high school shooting, there’s been a variety of “solutions” offered by pundits, alleged experts, politicians, among others on how to stop these tragic and senseless killings ranging from calls to ban all guns or just certain guns to arming teachers and putting police officers in schools.
“Ya got trouble, folks!
Right here in River City
Trouble with a capital “T”
And that rhymes with “B” and that stands for beach, booze and bullets!”
