San Luis Colorado and The New York Times

          Check the piece in yesterday's New York Times on small grocery stores struggling to stay in business. It featured a store in San Luis Colorado, one of Autoliterate's favorite destinations.
In Colorado terms, San Luis is probably about as far away, psychically, from, say, Aspen as you can get. We love the San Luis Valley and wish that the store could keep on keepin' on.
            Here on the peninsula, the Brooklin Store, which has been in business for a century or so, was rebuilt, and re-opened this spring. We're lucky to have it.
           BTW, there was '56 Chevy wagon for sale in San Luis back in April. Maybe still there.
