It???s amazing how many things you can get for a fairly decent price!??? One shopper wrote on Yelp New York, the online review site. Um, that???s the idea. And other observers have seemed befuddled in the big box, overwhelmed by the lure of tube sox and toilet paper to last a lifetime.

Timothy Egan wrote one of my favorite books, The Worst Hard Time, about the depression in the midwest. Last week, he wrote another great piece – this article in the Times. I hope I’m always able to keep in touch with my midwestern roots, regardless of how long I might live in the “big city.”

And the quote about Costco above? Priceless.
