    Living about 1.5 blocks away, I have to say: thank you so much, Whole Foods, for taking over the lease from Hi-Lo in JP! The Dig article and the author’s self-link sum things up very well in terms of how most of us feel about it.

    so I followed the link to the “annoyed with Nature” article only to find, in the comments section of the article, that the NPG had responded to the complaint and remedied the reported problem.
    Today is the day to be impressed with NPG.
