"Paris begins. Here It is the hat. At the age of 18. My mother embarked on a movie career in her native city of Antwerp. Until then, she had worked for the gas company and taken some elocution courses. But when the studio was built on the picking strapped at the initiative of a certain young Vanderheiden She walked in the door and was hired before long. A team had formed around Vanderheiden, who always used the same actors in the same crew. He oversaw both production and direction, and he shot his films in record time. The biggest rat studio was such a hive of activity that journalists called it. They AMP versus Hollywood's Hollywood of Antwerp. My mother was The very young lead actress and four Vanderheiden pictures he made the first two This man is an island and Johnson's versus painters over the course of 1939, the next to Johnson's and painters reconciled. And Good luck, Monique date from 1941. Three of the films or popular comedies set in Antwerp and made Vanderheiden as one critic. Put it of that time, the palm you'll of the shoulder. The fourth. Good luck. Monique was a musical. Buy them. The vendor heightened production company have been placed under German control, and my mother was sent for several weeks to Berlin, where she took a small part in really forced spell. I mean, In the year. 1939. My mother also signed a contract with Antwerp's Empire Theater. She was a showgirl. From June through December, They staged an adaptation of No, No, Nanette and my mother appeared in that then, starting in January, 1940 She was part of a current events review entitled Tomorrow will be better. She was at the center of the final tableau as the other show, Girls danced with Chamberlain umbrellas. My mother could be seen rising up in a basket, her head wreath and golden rays up up. She went And the rain stopped, the umbrellas came down. He was the image of the rising sun, whose light banished all the shadows of the coming year. From up in her basket, Mama. Waved to the audience. The orchestra played a medley. The curtain fell. Every time as a joke. The crew would leave her there in her basket, way up high in the dark. She lived. On the second floor of a little House. Near the key, Even dyke. One of her windows looked out over the shoulder and the riverside Promenade in the Big cafe. At the end, there was the Empire Theater. With a dressing room where she did her makeup every evening. There was the custom House. There were the streets along the waterfront. Report. And the docks. I see her crossing the avenue. As a street car rattles by its yellow light fizzling out in the fog. Now it is night. Steamers sound their horns. Wardrobe man at the Empire had grown fond of my mother and offered to service her manager. He was a jolly man with large horn rimmed glasses and very slow of speech, but by night at a cabaret in the Greek quarter frequented by sailors. He sang in a musical number as Madame Butterfly. According to him, the films of Vanderheiden charming and numerous, though they were Did not make an actress's career, My dear, you must think bigger. And as it happened, he knew a couple of important producers who were about to shoot a film. But we're still looking for a girl to play the second lead. He took my mother to meet them. These producers Turned out to be a man named Felix Open felled and his father known to everyone as open Feld, senior, a Berlin gem dealer. This often felt senior had retreated to Antwerp when Hitler seized power in Germany. Jewish businesses first came under threat. The sun, once ahead producer at the German movie studio terror film had found work in the United States. They liked my mother. They didn't even give her a screen test. They simply asked her to read a scene from the script right then and there, the movie had an English title swimmers and detectives. It had been written to spec for the young Dutch Olympic swimming champion, Vili done Oden, who wanted to go into film. For what? My mother told me. The rather lame detective subplot served as a pretext for various dives and aquatic ballets. My mother was to play the role of Lily than Oden's best friend. I have the contract that my mother signed that day. Two sheets of great thick sky blue paper. Watermarked with the open felled films letterhead at the top. The O of open Felled is very large with an elegant loop executive and telegraphic fix and thins. Inside the old stands a miniature Brandenburg Gate. Finally engraved. It is there, I suppose to recall the origins of the two producers in Berlin. It is agreed that my future of mother shall receive a fixed sum of 75,000 Belgian francs, payable installments at the commencement of each week of shooting. And it is understood by both parties that this fee shall not be subject to any augmentation a diminution until the contract shall expire or in due course, be extended. It is further stipulated. The time spent in makeup and wardrobe shall be considered work preparation, not work. As such. At the bottom of the page. My mother's careful signature Then the dashed off signature of Felix opened felled and the third signature in uneven choppier Spider he hand under which someone has typed Mr Open. Feld Senior. The contract is dated April 21st 1940. They invited my mother to dine with him that evening. Wardrobe man was also in attendance and the screenwriter Henry put mom whose nationality was unclear. Belgium English German You lied, and Odin was supposed to come meet my mother about the last minute was detained. It was very cheerful. To open films. Felix especially That's that courtesy, once rigid and playful, so typical of Berlin. Felix Open film had high hopes for the picture in American studio had already expressed interest hadn't he always said We should launch a series of detective comedies with a sporting angle. At some point during the dinner, they took a photo. Which I have on my desk..

And then here comes Patrick Mahomes comes down scores right away, and they never look back. Never look back. Uh, it just the Chiefs are really, really good. They got everything. Yeah, I mean the defense. They got just players ever taken beaches so many different ways he can run past you can throw past you.

Baltimore just cannot beat Kansas City can't In the three years that patch of my home has been quarterback. They have yet to be. Baltimore has yet to beat Kansas City. I tell you what the Chiefs are getting their money's worth. Yes, they are every penny of it. That's right, Patrick. Don't call him Pat. That was kind of funny. Actually, I mean to tweet about it. I and actually, Louis, Riddick said he was guilty. Guilty. Guilty. I apologize. Patrick. Apparently Patrick's dad goes bypass. Yeah, Mom says Dad is packed. Then he is Patrick won't make that mistake. No, no, And he said he didn't want to have tea here from his mom that I don't want to hear that tonight, he told Lisa Salters after the game, he says My mom says I'm Patrick, my dad's pat. So hopefully we can start called Patrick just to keep her happy. Because I don't want to hear that tonight. He seems like such a nice game. Don't I call him kid, but well, he was a kid. No. Use a kid to us. Charity is a kid. Well, congratulations and man, they just I just can't get over How good and how much fun it is to watch them as opposed to the Dallas Cowboys, where I get frustrated and yell and scream and and I watched the Kansas City Chiefs. I just smile the whole time. I mean, you're able to connect with an offensive lineman. I mean, that's that's special.

"But the gym Alea market that that was a couple of years ago three years ago is when They bought this thing, and it just recently closed because there was no demand for what it was. You're selling. Can. We just faced the facts of this for a second and let's go back to and I don't again. I'm not an expert on Avondale, North Avondale. I generally don't go down there don't have reason to. I am told the neighborhood's changing and it's much different than it was just a few years ago, and I think that's great. But I think there's a big issue here, and I don't know what it is. Quite honestly. Is there a cultural thing going on where we talk about food Desert and that would be areas of our city and other big cities, for that matter. Or rural areas, for that matter where the only thing around he eat as fast food and the only food you can buy is a convenience store, which generally is going to be high fat, high salt high sugar Junk food. Not not sustainable for a healthy lifestyle. And we're all guilty of buying bad food. Because it takes so damn good. But there are no healthy food options in the inner city. I understand that and that has been a problem for a long, long time. But I contend this if you put a market in the Clifton market if you put in What happened in Westwood a jubilee market and now you're going to do it again. And double down in Avondale. Can one say, Should we be examining a cultural element in those neighborhoods where people just simply don't want to eat that food? I don't know if it's a cultural thing. I have no idea. And I I would love to have an answer. Or maybe have somebody give me a I guess a reasonable gas. A scientific gas of this as to maybe you go. Well. Is it a cultural issue? Is there an issue within those neighborhoods that that folks don't want to eat? I don't know. Fresh to me. I don't know who would imagine Because good fresh tomatoes and fresh burgers, especially it's grown right next door to the plays. It sounds amazing to me. I is an important part of causes. The life is the fact that people are working or it's a It's a money issue because I guess this is going be affordable and I would say that probably nothing cheaper than fresh vegetables that are growing right next door, But I don't know these things. Is it something they're trying to say? Hey, we're gonna throw everything at this to force people to do what they should do. And that is a healthy diet because the social cost to all of us have any healthy life. Life's not what we know what that is. Right. Obesity, heart disease, high blood pressure. All of those things are bad for us for our longevity and for already overstrained medical system. We need to eat better as a country. I'm guilty that you're guilty that certainly the good people in Avondale in Westwood and elsewhere are guilty of that. But That being the fact that the fact the matter is Can you force people to eat food They don't want to eat is that isn't as simple as that. I would also couple it before I get your calls in the 513749 7800 big £1.7 18 T is the reason why In Avondale about 10 years ago. I think Alicia recent some counsel and I can't recall but About 10 year goes all D was an avenue Lenin Ali there. Always a good store. Rock bottom prices. Good working for you. I mean, could they pulled out and they pulled out because Of shrinkage that basically The people who would go to that Avondale. Holly. We're not buying as much as it was being taken off the shelves. And we had a similar problem. You may recall at the spring Rogue Kroger, where that young girl a couple of years ago, was tased by a Cincinnati police officer who ran away She had a backpack stuff, not with food, but with junk food magazine stuff like candy and stuff like that. She filled her backpack up stolen. The cop told her to stop. She didn't She got taste And of course, it's turned into a international incident. But the bottom line is that that is the problem with grocery stores in these neighborhoods. Is that The lost through theft is so high, you can't profit. You can't make any money. So at the end of the day of those two things you're selling food that most of the people don't want to eat. Another thing is what you are selling. You're any profits? You may make your getting. It's getting stolen. Getting away that way. Kind of like the vine market. The Vine Street Kroger, which has been a huge loss leader for Kroger for some time, but There's a perception issue that the Kroger companies because it's in their backyard can't have the perception there. They're gonna ignore that community. So they take a loss on that store. I'm sure the new one just down the street on court is his exact opposite. They're printing money over there. Now, 1 may say that shouldn't dictate whether the residents are entitled to free to Ah to ah good food or not good, wholesome food of Israel price. But that's not how the markets work. Can you force people they eat better than they really do. The answer, of course, is no. How much money have we spent year after year after year with closing the centre for closing healthcare gap, the gap is not closing is getting wider. So we spend hundreds of $1000 a year, a former mayor Dwight Ilary, on the centre for closing help cap and yet people are eating themselves in a in a in a coffin and a really great with a knife and fork. I don't have an answer this I don't purport to. But I'll point out with Greg Landsman saying, we've learned from the mistakes of the past. We've learned from the Clifton market We've learned from Jubilee We have learned from the Empire Theatre. We have learned from places like the Clifton idea, and we have learned Of course from mahogany Sze. Have we really do dearly think that our elected officials have learned? That this is going to be the one that turns it around based on past performance. I don't know. I could be so sure. 513749 7008 under the big £1.7 of T and T. I'm not often an avenue matter Fact, Cameron last time was in Avondale North Avenue. But maybe you live in there, maybe maybe live in those neighborhoods. And I've heard some things are starting to turn around in heaven on which is great, because I want to see all 52 neighborhoods thrive and survive. But in this case I look at a guy and I just I don't know 513749 7000. Tony, you're in the Scots Alone Show. Hi there. You don't buddy. What's up, man? You know, I heard lands and talking and just ludicrous to think that people that go down Finley market Go up to the country. Meet Amanda. Right now. I mean, I agree that area's getting turned around. But it's not. It's not sound thinking. And they're just not gonna do it. I see the crowded defense. It is a diverse, There's no doubt about it, and there's a lot of diversity. Finley American, It's awesome to see it's not everyone there is, you know, driving a BMW or, you know, living in a $700,000 condo down to Donna. No tr, but there's a lot of gentrification in that neighborhood. I don't know if that's true and Avenue. Yeah, well, I don't agree with you Have a great holiday. We hate you, too, buddy. Thanks for the call Real quick at 513749 7800 big ones. Here's the thing is right. If you put produce out if it doesn't get eaten, what a day or two You got to throw it out..

"So the point, But the point is, I think arguing is anything new. Why are we seeing a 50% increase year to year? That's the biggest issue. Yes, I think it's the guns. You know It's the pandemic and the fact that people are out of work. There's an enormous amount of anxiety on DH. So I do think that the strategy has to be Let's go after these guns If you see a big, big, big drop and guns, right, we got him off the street and a big big drop in these young people going backto work. You will see a drop in my opinion. In shootings and homicides. All right, so we need a good plan. Here's what it is that I agree with the other job, saying once the jobs in the 19 fifties essentially left the cities, you know, we saw the decimation of urban neighborhoods like Cincinnati and others, and that's a big issue and getting people back to work and working, especially young people. If you're you know, idle time is going to be a problem. So I grew up that we have the money. I mean, this is we did this in the budget. We said Look, we're going to prioritize you jobs we have so instead of being able to serve, you know, provide jobs for a couple of 100 kids. We're now looking at thousands, so we need to get into these neighborhoods. And connect young people these jobs as soon as possible. I agree. I agree, and this takes money said he got money, but you know he's used more money. It's not like you were flush with cash these days, which makes every penny count which makes me then let me pivot to this Greg Landsman because you voted You supported this. Let me lay this case out for you and then eso Eso. Everyone has the facts and you got answers. Seek out you voted to spend some $500,000 to subsidizing new grocery store in Avondale because of the issue of food desert. I looked at the track record not been granted. You look at the development of Cincinnati has been wonderful. But these air from large big companies developing because there's money to be made. There's a profit to be made out of this when the city starts picking winners and losers relative to investing people's monies. And granted. You get enough crumbs. You make a loaf 500,000 here, Let's let's talk about lives. Rogers and Mahogany is $300,000 plus all the finds in the fixtures and equipment. The legal issues and like that was a train wreck. All because the prior city manager like the sandwich, he had a restaurant in Hamilton and said, Hey, Liz Rogers. How would you like to go on a bigger stage at the brand New banks Project with mahogany is will give you the space well capitalized and everything else. Never by the look of her credit record. What a track record wasn't managing a business. We don't care. We put her in a place because she's a female and she's a black female. Perfect. The Clifton I G a project. We threw money at that. That that thing about evaporated we gave money at one point to a guy back in 2013 named LaShawn Pettus Brown. Who said I'm a rehab er I'm a developer gave the money to do the Empire Theatre of the Ryan. He skipped town with almost $200,000. In the most recent and I could talk about a UC architect whose wife I could talk about other things, but the one that gets me is the food Desert issued the Jubilee Market in Westwood. You had a blighted convenience store that was basically a front for criminal activity. Outside the place is a lot of these places are We said Hey, we need a place to buy fresh groceries, Thie, the local residents demand we want produce would have any produce. We need fresh meat, cheese and stuff like that. So the city comes in this guy who owned it Bought it for 130 K 2 years later. You guys come a check for $250,000 Just like double They get another three grand in federal grant money. You gave him some lots, which is fine, too grown and put in the gardens and grow affordable food to sell in the store. They turned the operation over you guys. Again pick someone who has no experience in running a business how to go within a year. The gardens are over growing. You nail them at $120,000 a nuisance finds they shut the store down. It's worse than it was before. No one came in to buy the affordable food in the produce, because people didn't want that, And now the city is a net loss of $350,000, Greg. Shouldn't the definition insanity is doing the same thing over and over again? Is this the definition of insanity? Now? $500,000 for a grocery store in having Dale to repeat the process? What am I missing here? A couple things. One is, um You know, you do learn from from your mistakes. You really sound like that. But you know, all of those Happened before. I got to counsel a couple years ago. I believe I Yes, they all did. I know. Even though I wasn't there. I definitely followed them. And I paid attention to the things that didn't work right. Like what? Wasn't there that needed to be there and so like for Liz Rogers, for example, like the idea of helping a black owned Ah, Businesswoman, you know, be part of this space development. You know, Waas was was great challenge was they put her in my mind and impossible. No question about it. Someone kill you with a million dollars in investment and said, Here's a million dollars You'd be an idiot not to take it whether you're qualified with it or not. The spot was so big and but there's no way that that's the problem is Greg. There's no. You're saying you're a different guy coming in. I respect that. But if you're a different guy, and you do the same things your predecessors do and what I think when I'm saying, I think the city has done a better job of betting these in the past couple of years like I think they've learned from the mistakes to sew on this on this one. What about everyone? About what? What about the one I just mentioned? Just just you just did this the one a Jubilee mark in Westwood. This just happened. Several years ago three years ago. Is it really that it's not ancient history? I know, but I just want to make sure before me, Okay, But what did I like? I get that, But what did I just lay out to you that you're not repeating here with $500,000 in Avondale? Let let me go back in history. Just a second here for he answered that the history do you know why there's no. You know why there's no grocery store in Avondale. Correct. I d'oh because 10 years ago, Al D.

"Like candy and stuff like that. She filled her backpack up stolen. The cop told her to stop. She didn't She got taste And of course, it's turned into a international incident. But the bottom line is that that is the problem with grocery stores in these neighborhoods. Is that The lost through theft is so high, you can't profit. You can't make any money. So at the end of the day of those two things you're selling food that most of the people don't want to eat. And the other thing is what you are selling. Any profits. You may make your getting. It's getting stolen, getting in the way that way. Kind of like the vine market. The Vine Street Kroger, which has been a huge loss later for Kroger for some time, but There's a perception issue that the Kroger companies because it's in their backyard can't have the perception there. They're gonna ignore that community. So they take a loss on that store. I'm sure the new one just down the street on court is his exact opposite. They're printing money over there. Now, 1 may say that shouldn't dictate whether the residents are entitled to free to Ah to ah good food or not good, wholesome food of Israel price. But that's not how the markets work. Can you force people they eat better than they really do. The answer, of course, is no. How much money have we spent year after year after year with closing the centre for closing healthcare gap, the gap is not closing is getting wider. So we spent hundreds of $1000 a year, a former mayor Dwight Hillary, on the centre for closing help cap and yet people are eating themselves in a in a coffin and a really great with a knife and fork. I don't have an answer this I don't purport to. But I'll point out with Greg Lance and saying we've learned from the mistakes of the past we've learned from the Clifton market We've learned from Jubilee We have learned from the Empire Theatre. We have learned from places like the Clifton idea, and we have learned Of course from mahogany Sze. Have we really do dearly think that our elected officials have learned? That this is going to be the one that turns it around. Based on past performance. I don't know. I could be so sure. 513749 7008 under the big £1.7 of T and T. I'm not often in Avondale matter. Fact, Cameron last time was in Avondale North Avenue. Maybe you live in there, maybe maybe live in those neighborhoods. And I've heard some things are starting to turn around and Evan, which is great, because I want to see all 52 neighborhoods thrive and survive. But in this case I look at a guy and I just I don't know 513749 7000. Tony, you're in the Scots Alone Show. Hi there. You don't buddy. What's up, man? You know, I heard lands and talking and just ludicrous to think that people that go down family market Go up to the country meet AnAnd. Right now. I mean, I agree that area's getting turned around. But it's not. It's not sound thinking. They're just talking. And I see the crowded It is a diverse, There's no doubt about it, and there's a lot of diversity. Finley American, It's awesome to see it's not everyone there is, you know, driving a BMW or living in a $700,000 condo down to Donna. No tr, but there's a lot of gentrification in that neighborhood. I don't know if that's true and Avenue. Yeah, well, I don't agree with you right now that we see you, too, buddy. Thanks for the call Real quick at 513749 7800 big ones. Here's the thing is right.

"Point, But the point is, I have the arguing Is anything new? Why are we seeing a 50% increase year to year? That's the biggest issue. Yeah, So I think it's the guns. You know It's the pandemic and the fact that people are out of work. There's an enormous amount of anxiety on DH. So I do think that the strategy has to be Let's go after these guns If you see a big, big, big drop and guns, right, we got him off the street and a big big drop in these young people going backto work. You will see a drop in my opinion. In shootings and all right, so we need a good plan. Here's what it is that I agree with you on jobs. Once the jobs in the 19 fifties essentially left the cities, you know, we saw the decimation of urban neighborhoods like Cincinnati and others. And that's a big issue in getting people back to work and working, especially young people. If you're you know, idle time is going to be a problem. So I agree we have the money. I mean, this is we did this in the budget. We said Look, we're going to prioritize you jobs we have so instead of being able to serve, you know, provide jobs for a couple of 100 kids. We're now looking at thousands, so we need to get into these neighborhoods. And connect young people to these jobs as soon as possible. I agree. I agree, and this takes money said he got money, but you know he's used more money. It's not like you were flush with cash these days, which makes every penny count which makes me then let me pivot to this Greg Landsman because you voted You supported this. Let me lay this case out for you and then eso eso. Everyone has the fact that you got answers. City. Can't you voted to spend some $500,000 to subsidizing new grocery store in Avondale? Because of the issue of food desert, I looked at the track record not of been granted. You look at the development of Cincinnati has been wonderful. But these air from large big companies developing because there's money to be made. There's a profit to be made out of this when the city starts picking winners and losers relative to investing people's monies. And granted, you get enough crumbs. You make a loaf 500,000 here, Let's let's talk about lives. Rogers and Mahogany is $300,000. Plus all the finds in the fixtures and equipment and the legal issues and like that was a train wreck. All because the prior city manager like the sandwich, he had a restaurant in Hamilton and said, Hey, Liz Rogers. How would you like to go on a bigger stage? At the brand new banks project with mahogany is will give you the space well capitalized and everything else, never by the look of her credit record. What a track record wasn't managing the business. We don't care. We put her in a place because she's a female and she's a black female. Perfect The Clifton Idea Project. We threw money at that. That that thing about evaporated we gave money at one point to a guy back in 2013 named LaShawn Pettus Brown, who said I'm a rehab or I'm a developer gave the money to do the Empire Theatre of the Ryan.

You nail them at $120,000 a nuisance finds they shut the store down. It's worse than it was before. No one came in to buy the affordable food in the produce, because people didn't want that.

"That that was a couple of years ago three years ago is when That they bought this thing, and it just recently closed because there was no demand for what it was. You're selling. Can we just faced the facts of this for a second and let's go back to and I don't again? I'm not an expert on Avondale, North Avondale. I generally don't go down there don't have reason to I am told the neighborhood's changing and it's much different than it was just a few years ago, and I think that's great. But I think there's a big issue here, and I don't know what it is. Quite honestly. Is there a cultural thing going on where we talk about food Desert and that would be areas of our city and other big cities, for that matter. Or rural areas, for that matter where the only thing around he eats fast food and the only food you can buy isn't convenience Store which generally is going to be high fat, high salt high sugar Junk food. Not not sustainable for a healthy lifestyle. And we're all guilty of buying bad food. Because it takes so damn good. But there are no healthy food options in the inner city. I understand it, and that has been a problem for a long, long time. But I contend this if you put a market in the Clifton market if you put in What happened in Westwood a jubilee market and now you're going to do it again. And double down in Avondale. Can one say, Should we be examining a cultural element in those neighborhoods where people just simply don't want to eat that food? I don't know if it's a cultural thing. I have no idea. And I I would love to have an answer. Or maybe have somebody give me a I guess a reasonable gas. A scientific gas of this as to maybe you go. Well. Is it a cultural issue? Is there an issue within those neighborhoods that that folks don't want to eat? I don't know. Fresh to me. I don't know who would imagine Because good fresh tomatoes and fresh burgers, especially it's grown right next door to the place. It sounds amazing to me. I is An important part, of course, is the life is the fact that people are working or it's a It's a money issue, because I guess this is going be affordable and I would say that probably nothing cheaper than fresh vegetables that are growing right next door, But I don't know these things. Is it something they're trying to say? Hey, we're gonna throw everything at this to force people to do what they should do. And that is a healthy diet because the social cost to all of us have any healthy life. Life's not what we know what that is. Right. Obesity, heart disease, high blood pressure. All of those things are bad for us for our longevity and for already overstrained medical system. We need to eat better as a country. I'm guilty that you're guilty that certainly the good people in Avondale and in Westwood and elsewhere are guilty of that. But That being the fact that the fact that matter is can you force people to eat food they don't want to eat is that isn't as simple as that. I would also couple it before I get your calls in the 513749 7800 big ones and pounds of TNT is the reason why In Avondale about 10 years ago. I think Alicia recent some counsel and I can't recall but About 10 year goes all the wasn't Avenue Lenin Ali there. Always a good store. Rock bottom prices. Good working for you. I mean, could they pulled out and they pulled out because Of shrinkage that basically The people who would go to that Avondale. Holly. We're not buying as much as it was being taken off the shelves. And we had a similar problem. You may recall at the spring grub Kroger, where that young girl a couple of years ago, was tased by a Cincinnati police officer who ran away She had a backpack stuff, not with food, but with junk food magazine stuff like candy and stuff like that. She filled her backpack up stolen. The cop told her to stop. She didn't She got taste And of course, it's turned into a international incident. But the bottom line is that that is the problem with grocery stores in these neighborhoods. Is that The lost through theft is so high, you can't profit. You can't make any money. So at the end of the day of those two things you're selling food that most people don't want to eat. And the other thing is what you are selling. You're any profits? You may make your getting. It's getting stolen, getting eaten away that way. Kind of like the vine market. The Vine Street Kroger, which has been a huge loss leader for Kroger for some time, but There's a perception issue that the Kroger companies because it's in their backyard can't have the perception that they may ignore that community. So they take a loss on that store. I'm sure the new one just down the street on court is his exact opposite. They're printing money over there. Now, 1 may say that shouldn't dictate whether the residents are entitled to free to Ah to ah good food or not good, wholesome food of Israel price. But that's not how the markets work.
