Boarders? More like BOREders? AMIRITE?!
Say goodbye one last time. Borders be closing. Mega-chains can’t hang with the interwebz. Let’s hope the same can’t be said about some of our local bookstores. Borders might be shelved, but that doesn’t mean Domy, Brazos Bookstore, Kaboom Books, 1/4 Price Books, Murder by the Book, etc. are going anywhere. Right? RIGHT?!

NASA sends two T-100’s to the surface of the moon where they will test their surroundings in a complicated scientific game of cat and mouse.
