Maybe it's pms or something (is there a post-ms?) but that article by NM on all-ages venues has got me all choked up and I'm thisclose to firing off a tear stained email to news and review to thank him for it. Expect some embarrassing autobiographical exposures.
And now I'm about to cry about something else. CH just sent this around to the Poinsettia list. That reminds me, the Rite Aid in my 'hood is now open. I'm glad I hardly ever walk that way so I don't have to constantly be filled with rage.
The Walgreens corporation is planning to build a 12,000 square foot store on Alhambra between L and Capitol, where the Mayflower restaurant and the old Luis's restaurants are. This is directly across the street from the Rite Aid and one block away from the Safeway, both of which already have 24 hour pharmacies, and as most of you know Sacramento already has had an explosion of Rite Aids, Walgreens and Longs. Do we really need another pharmacy? Much less a 12,000 foot behemoth with zero lot lines right up to the sidewalk in a historic district? These large corporate pharmacies have a history of building near each other in locations all over the US in an attempt to put the other out of business. Don't let Alhambra become the newest battlegound in their little war. Please read and sign the online petition and forward it to as many people as you think might care about this issue.
