When you have been in business for 45 years, you expect that you have seen just about everything that can happen in your store.
But the universe keeps some goodies in its back pocket, and early Saturday, about 1:30 in the morning, a motorcyclist and his bike crashed through the front window of Logos. No human was hurt, but a display table and a couple of hundred books met their demise. They will be mourned.
Just a few choice photos follow…
