    Bias Claimed As Anti-Kerry Book Sells Out
    By HILLEL ITALIE, AP National Writer

    NEW YORK - The nation's two biggest bookstore chains, Barnes & Noble and Borders, say angry customers are accusing them of political bias as the retailers struggle to keep up with demand for a best seller that questions John Kerry (news - web sites)'s military service in Vietnam.

    "Unfit for Command," which went on sale Aug. 11 with a first printing of 85,000, will have 550,000 copies in print by next week, according to Regnery Publishing.

    Sales have soared as allegations about the Democratic nominee's wartime actions dominate the presidential campaign.
