A snapshot of life

Saturday, June 5, 2010
Scottsdale, Arizona
3:09 p.m.

A small strip mall near the center of Old Town Scottsdale (click to embiggen):

All of the stores are out of business, with the landlord offering "newly reduced rents" for the empty spaces.  The sole exception is the local psychic, who is still open and seems to be doing a brisk business.

It certainly appears that this seer "knew" the bad economy was coming and planned accordingly.  Either that or all of the displaced shop owners are lining up to get some advice as to their next move.
