Of course not, Nat. That would mean admitting I know what I'm talking about and you don't.
Pat, you've just spent this thread displaying how little you know about the neighborhoods I live in. If you want to have credibility, first you have to show some sign that you actually know what you're talking about. When you do like you did in the Tansini thread, trying to claim some expertise after already getting basic facts wrong, it just doesn't work. You've spent your time mis-describing to Internet pros how the Internet works, mis-describing to comics fans and pros what comics are available, mis-explaining to computer pros about what computers are available and what they can do. Hell, you spent time in a conversation with me and Ted Slampyak mis-describing the contents of an agreement that Ted and I had reached and that you were in no way privy to. I can't think of anyone I have ever dealt with who shows less ability than you to distinguish things he knows from things he doesn't.

You may have some insights into supermarkets in general (although I've yet to see much evidence of it), but when you try to tell me specifics about a supermarket that you show no sign of having been to, I see no reason to lend that any credence.

Riiiiiight.... Pat, look at this thread. I posted details on the places I've lived recently, in answer to a request to do so. For some reason, you felt the need to question me repeatedly about the information, and to posit points seemingly based on answers you presumed you would get, even where your points didn't match with the tone of information in my posts.

Nat isn't talking about a supermarket.
Actually, I am (at least in the context of how "supermarket" has traditionally been used; on today's scale, it's not so super). Farmers, at the corner of Los Robles and Villa in Pasadena, has a manned meat counter, has several checkout lanes plus a quick purchases/smokes&lottery checkout, a manned meat counter, etc. It's not just a mom'n'pop grocery stop.

Kinda off-topic at this point, but as the subject had come up before in this thread (during the speculation of circulation numbers), I relay this piece of information from an AP article on MAD Magazine...

"...Besides, it's pretty clear that they could use the money. Mad won't disclose any financial data, but its circulation has declining sharply since the early 1970s, when it hit a peak of 2.3 million, and currently stands around 250,000."

Mad actually reached a circulation of just under 3 million, in the late 70's/early 80's.

Maurice Sendak's SOME SWELL PUP is very much a comic book, right down to word balloons.

Of course, it first came out, like, 15 years ago....
