Adieu, Kohl's

I'm a little sad the Kohl's on East Wash closed, not (unlike some of the other Kohl's) to be replaced. That's my old 'hood. I used to live at Victory Arms apartments across the street, and Kohl's was where I did all my grocery shopping. I liked the people who worked there. I liked the deli counter. I liked to look at Men's Workout magazine (rrrr) in the magazine rack. Now it's all gone.

That's a strange, troubled neighborhood. Maybe it will improve after Cathy Dethmers opens her new nightclub there.

Where's everyone around there going to buy groceries now? Maybe they'll get wise and take the bus down to the Willy St. Co-op. Nothing like a little transitional produce to take your mind off the unfair realities of late capitalism.
