5/24    The Pinkberry song

        \_ Speaking of Pinkberry, I'm the op who posted the following:
           http://csua.com/?entry=46690
           After talking to a bunch of people it appears that no one seems
           to be sympathetic to the traffic congestion it has caused. On
           the bright side I see a bunch of attractive looking college
           women waiting for their pinkberries.
           \_ Ask them about their pinkberries.

A new Pinkberry opened up across from where I live and it has increased traffic jam. I'm thinking of petitioning, with the help of HOA, to get them pay for a new parking structure, or better yet, kick them out. I don't think anyone would consider check cashing or pawn shops as "desirable." A sports bar could easily raise property values, as could a casino. That is the only \_ wilderness \_ A shack in Montana far off the grid. I still found it a bit odd to see cars with an ominously undescriptive security force name and a federal government (DHS) logo on the side pulling over and questioning/fining people on Market St. There is a scratch on the bumper and white paint from my car on top of the red paint from his car, but it's not at all a dent and it's pretty low, so might not even be noticed by ...
