Dead Store Walking?

Two weeks ago they had an IRS seizure notice posted on their door, and next to that was an eviction notice for non-payment of rent. In the window was a hand-written sign that said "Don't worry, kids. We'll be open again soon."

I'm an eternal optimist, but even I spoke in hushed tones about this one. Sorry, they ain't coming back, I said to Samuel.

About a week ago I passed by and saw the colorful flags in front, and I smiled. Maybe they still won't make it in the long run. But, as Keynes said, in the long run we're all dead. Life is a series of short runs, so I'm calling this one a victory for the underdog.
