The old world passes

First, I noticed on my way in to work that the Sears in Randall Park Mall was closing. I worked there about 20 years ago, first as a Discover Card peddler, and then in Lawn and Garden, commission sales. I guess it was a foregone conclusion that since Randall Park Mall closed, Sears would soon follow, though they had their own entrances. 

And the Ann Arbor News has announced that it’s going out of business. I was a regular reader 30 years ago, particularly political and cultural news and the acerbic concert reviews of Jim Leonard.
