Not in the clamor of the crowded street, not in the shouts and plaudits of the throng, but in ourselves, are triumph and defeat.--Henry Wadsworth Longfellow
REDIRECT ALERT! (Scroll down past this mess if you're trying to read an archived post. Thanks. No, really, thanks.)
Due to my inability to control my temper and complacently accept continued silliness with not-quite-as-reliable-as-it-ought-to-be Blogger/Blogspot, your beloved Possumblog will now waddle across the Information Dirt Road and park its prehensile tail at http://possumblog.mu.nu.
This site will remain in place as a backup in case Munuvia gets hit by a bus or something, but I don't think they have as much trouble with this as some places do. ::cough::blogspot::cough:: So click here and adjust your links. I apologize for the inconvenience, but it's one of those things.

Another sign of the times
CVS to close downtown pharmacy despite petition drive to save itWell, that's not good news--this is the second drug store on Birmingham Green (the main north-south street in town) to close in the last couple of years--there used to be a Payless right across the street (that was converted last year to a Quiznos). What makes it harder to take is not that the store was unprofitable, only that it was only marginally profitable. It is making money, just not as much as the suburban stores. There is a market downtown for this type of store--the number of residential lofts continues to grow, and there are more employees located downtown than any other place in the state, so maybe some agressive newcomer or private pharmacist can carve out a niche. Even if it's not in the same location--this store is located on a prime corner lot, and only occupies the lower floor. The whole building is a nice old historic building that could make a great office or living space. So, maybe it will work out okay. And as for the McDonalds that is mentioned in the article, that space is being renovated so the Sabor Mazatlan Latino Tower Cafe place that Miss Reba and I eat as sometimes can move there. Darned site better than Mickey D's, that's for sure.
