Target Watch Part 2: I got shit around the office for my previous post. But so what. This morning I hung out on 14th Street and noticed:

a) The area in front of the Target entrance reverted to a ghost town.

b) The mounted police were gone.

c) The rumored ticketing of jaywalkers is still just a rumor. But a cop got on his cruiser’s loudspeaker to yell at an elderly couple hobbling across Monroe far from a cross walk. It was ridiculous.

d) Sticky Fingers is almost always crowded. Don’t vegans have jobs?
