In Lieu of Flowers

Last Tuesday and Wednesday, Idle Time Books in Adams-Morgan was closed because of the death of its owner, Jacques Rene Morgan. In looking at the picture then in the window, or the one in the Post's death notice, I can't say for sure that I ever met him. Certainly he ran a good bookstore.

The death notice concludes
In lieu of flowers, come buy a book. A memorial service will be held at a later date.
No doubt I shortly shall go buy a book. What better way to remember a bookman?
