I have heard it said that springtime at Shuangxi is yet lovely. I intend to sail there in a dainty boat.

A small rant to return this little corner of the internet to life. It seems Borders is closing its remaining stores and laying off pretty much everyone. This is a very unfortunate thing for these people, but the response on Twitter has been a massive overreaction. Calls have been going out from authors, blog writers, and book reviewers to find jobs for these people. Borders Closing Why now? Why Borders employees? It was a good book store, but there have been plenty of people laid off before now and who have been out of a job for far longer. What makes Borders employees so special? In my opinion, nothing. They’re people doing a job like most anyone else. Just because they worked at a place that people seemed to love doesn’t mean they should receive some sort of special treatment from the world. I don’t have any suggestions for the situation, it just irks me that everyone wants to hand jobs to Borders employees on a silver platter.
