  • And let me explain.

  • Right now, bookstores like Waterstones Air closed.

  • But wh Smith continue to sell books legal.

  • Who doesn't care a thing about independent businesses or their employees or the families that are allowed to stay in existence or the mental health of the people that are allowed toe work.

  • They're not thinking about this stuff and easily.
