Of Course, He Also Doesn't Know Why Anyone Would Ever Vote For Bush, So There You Go

I am jealous of Wired News copy chief Tony Long. And it's because he gets paid to crap out intellectually vacant drek like this:

I can think of no reason why anyone within 10 miles of an actual bookstore would buy a book at Costco or Wal-Mart. Ever.

Here's one for you, Einstein. I'll type slow so you can stay with me: Because. It's. Closer. Here's another: Because. It's. Probably. Cheaper.

Damn. Long's goat picture must be a hum-dinger.

It's worse than that. This guy completely missed the boat. Where has he been for the last fifteen years? Didn't he see "You've Got Mail"? It isn't Wal-Mart and Costco that are killing the small bookstores, it's the big corporate chain bookstores, like Barnes & Noble and Borders.

Wal-Mart's book selection isn't even that good, unless you are looking for the latest "Oprah's Book Club" selection or trendy movie tie-in novel.
