whole foods took my nerdiness away

i used to rely on the p street whole foods to supply me weekly (and monthly) with copies of the dupont current, city paper, intowner, dc north, and even the hill rag, if you got it within the first couple days of the month.

turns out that now, the store has decided to not allow community papers to be placed in the vestibule near the elevators. it's really a shame, because they were providing a great community service, keeping all those papers in one place (in addition to the papers i religiously read, the washington blade , metro weekly, and downtowner were always available there as well). it was one-stop shopping for a local news nerd like me, and now it's gone. for someone bicycle-commuting from downtown up to bloomingdale, it was a perfect location, since it was basically on my way home. now i've got to bike around town to get my newspaper fix. grrrr.....

Now see, I think they've enhanced your nerdiness by making you show even more dedication to these local papers.

Just my take.

Oh dear, that blows. I don't suppose they've provided an explanation for that policy change? I always thought they were so "community friendly" but that's not community friendly at all.

well, i've gone on to candida's world of books at 14th and q. they seem to carry all the nerdy papers that i need (now, if they just had a wider variety than just travel books...)
