City Lights Bookstore in San Francisco closing

and may never re-open - from ABC News.

From that article: "Founded in 1953 by two friends, college professor Peter D. Martin and the poet Lawrence Ferlinghetti, City Lights became a cultural institution for San Francisco's bohemians and literati."  

I didn't know about Peter Martin. City Lights has been so central in the lives of many people in the cuke realm - the Zennies, the artists, the poets, the readers, the browsers, the walkers around. 

I need help expressing how important it has been. Please send any comments or memories of City Lights and what it's meant to you to dchad at cuke dot com. - dc
