    Tracy Walsch of Heights Books: “…business is business…it isn’t, like, we’re a community facility…we’re not here to add a pleasant element to the neighborhood…us leaving is representative of what’s going on….”

    Of course business is business. Yet there’s something a little shocking about Ms. Walsch’s lack of any expressed sympathetic connection to the area…or any statement of gratitude for her former customers.

    “…Us leaving is symptomatic of what’s happening around here.” But isn’t it the other way around?

    Very nice to see hyperlocal “tv” news reporting. Thanks!

    AEB, you seem to enjoy getting indignant at local business owners these days.

    I think you’re onto something, my2. I don’t know…taking my meds as usual. still employed…the cats haven’t thrown up in days….

    Remember the song, “Blame It on the Bossa Nova”?

    I think you’re onto something, AEB. When the Bagelady (a.k.a. the “Bossa Nova”) closed shop, this precipitated a decline in the quality of service and goods provided by local merchants.
