Bookstore Cats

I was at A Novel Idea for a read-in* the other day, and the cats (Padraig and Eddie) were out doing their curious cat thing, instead of staying curled up and asleep in the windows.

* The Read-In was in protest of a TransCanada pipeline (the Keystone XL line, if I’m not mistaken) that, if built, will put an oil pipeline straight through Nebraska’s Sandhills, an ecologically delicate region that is 1) unique in the United States (as far as I know), and 2) covers a large portion of the Ogalala Aquifer, which provides drinking water to most of the state’s residents, and irrigation to a large portion of  the state’s farmers. Given the recent history of oil pipelines breaking down and causing major pollution to rivers in Michigan, Wyoming, Illinois, and Montana in recent years, a pipeline going from oil sand fields in Canada to Okalahoma/Texas sounds like the last thing we need.

    1. Yup! It’s a little used bookstore in downtown Lincoln called “A Novel Idea”. They’re celebrating their 20th anniversary this year. Eddie and Padraig are relatively new, as they’ve only been there for a couple of years.
