Re: What caused this?
Sounds like an Abbie Hoffman "Steal This Book" kinda thing.
I live in a two horse town and do my best to support local merchants.
It's in our better interests to do so.
If they are unable to generate profit, they could very easily close their doors.
Enough of that going on, as it is!
If I can not afford to purchase what I would really like, I'll find a way to get by with lesser options.
It ain't quite so glorious as the 1st cabin, but I'm still havin' fun.
