Huntington Beach police arrested a registered sex offender Saturday after two customers reported he was following them and making suggestive comments at Barnes & Noble at Bella Terra. About 6:30 p.m., a 15-year-old girl reported that Charles Michael Metcalf, 53, of Tustin, was following her around the store, and she went to find her adult sister, who was also inside the store, Lt. Russell Reinhart said. Metcalf then allegedly approached the sisters and began making sexually suggestive comments, and the sisters went to the store manager, who called police.

“I might faint when he gets here.” That what Dean Valesio, 40, of Norco said as he looked at the empty table before him with the row of black Sharpies neatly lined up. No doubt that feeling was shared by the hundreds of other people wrapped around Barnes & Noble on this cool evening, many sporting black leather, tattoos, a variety of piercings and Black Sabbath T-shirts — lots of Black Sabbath T-shirts. In what could double as a late-1970s concert queue, the faithful waited for Ozzy Osbourne.

My first of many, as it turned out, because Seattle is one of the few cities that might stand a chance of putting a Barnes & Noble out of business. In the rain-streaked area around Pioneer Square, I found hole-in-the-wall establishments piled with used volumes, poetry pamphlets and left-wing incitements. A cynical friend of mine recently said that before long, America will be dominated by Walmart, Starbucks and Barnes & Noble.
