Chucking the two-buck makers?

Only in SF is Trader Joe's the big bad corporate guy threatening to squash the little guy.

"It's more of a parking garage with a store underneath," said Joe Curtin, president of Castro Area Planning + Action, referring to the proposed Castro location. "It's geared to bringing as many people outside of the neighborhood with cars."

It's a parking garage with a store underneath? At least they're building parking with it. And the real problem is those out-of-the-neighborhood people invading. That's always the real problem.

It never ceases to amaze me how a tiny, tiny city on the edge of the country can continuously subdivide into even tinier fortresses. Maybe it's because people don't have backyards. So it has to be Not In My Neighborhood.
