*Everyday Chatter

Save St. Mark's Books: Let Cooper Union know they can't take away another vital piece of the EV. So far, Cooper has not been "particularly sympathetic." [RS]

What do shuttered bookstores become in NYC? Genital waxing salons and real estate offices. Atlantic Books' memory befouled. [BSr]

After 30 years, Life Cafe has closed. Indefinitely. [EVG]

Good to know 21's classic and kinky murals are A-OK. [LC]

Target has created a giant blogger doll. And it's very creepy. And it lives in the Meatpacking District. [Racked]

Check out this collection of here-today, gone-tomorrow storefronts of the LES. [GC]

As another comment somewhere noted, if all 12,000 people who signed the petition to save St. Marks Bookshop actually went there once a month, every month, and bought a book, the store wouldn't have to close.
We can actually save this place, unlike so many others.
The closure is not inevitable.
Unless, of course, all anyone does is sign an online petition.

And my book "100 Whores" is still on the shelf at the St Marks Bookshop just waiting for a reader/buyer.
