The Very Center Of The Center

We always knew it -- even with the closing of the Bookstop, the corner of Alabama and Shepherd is the center of the world. Or the "Center of the World Center," as the city's public works department might put it.

We can only be glad that the Amboy Dukes didn't hire the DPW to art-design the cover of what would have become Journey to the Center of the Mind Center.

DPW spokesperson Alvin Wright tells Hair Balls he wasn't aware of any possible mis-wording on the sign, but will investigate. The Houston Center for Photography hasn't returned our call, but then again they're no doubt in the middle of something. (Get it? GET IT?)
