And now a word from American Digest's New Sponsor!

We had one of those in my hometown back in the day. Many years of going out of business sales. It was a tourist town, so they were aiming to flim flam those just passing through. The natives - we were on to them.

I loved the "Opening soon in Northgate."

We've all got one of these type "Always going out of business" businesses around us.

Is there a subtext we're missing here? Hope you're sticking around!

See, Gerard? The 'bots come around like mice when you're away too long.

I enjoyed that show, and I remember that Ballard Driving Academy bit. Old friend of mine's wife is from Ballard. One of my wife's sons lives in Ballard.
