The Westwood Borders has become a homeless hangout. The good news is that they don't bother anybody. The bad news is that, apparently in response, the store has removed most of its chairs, including all of the comfy ones. So if you want to use the wi-fi and do a little writing, as well as buy a magazine or two, you have to sit either on the floor or, if you're lucky, a backless bench.
Speaking of books, thanks to all you fine people who've been pre-ordering The Substance of Style.
