Savage Empire by Jean Lorrah. One important scene in the story is a telepath who can "see" inside of the body makes a 3d model of a tumor by hand in clay and the brain of his ally's father. The ally (a savage lady) then makes the tumor, "not be" telekineticly. As the tumor is removed, he as to remake both models as the brain expands back into the empty space. Patient lives.
That's OK. We can differ on what is the definition of a local store. from the original article. "What brick-and-mortar stores make sense where you live?" That is what I meant. B&M near me "local" verses remote: long drive either for me or for my UPS driver.
I am not "in love" with the buy local slogan. Those that push that, better never take money from out-of-towner's. My "local" stores are filled with out-of-state tags because we are 25 mi from the border. I live in a medium town (36,000) 1/3 of the workers drive in from 25 miles away in larger cities.
If we loose BB, all I have left is Target, Wal-mart, Staples, Office Depot and of course the INTERNET.
My last 3 laptops came from Staples. Good Prices, Good Selection and NO pushy salesman!
AND no LOUD music.
