You know it’s coming … if it hasn’t already somewhere. Every week for years, I see some new and BIGGER drugstore replacing some landmark corner store. The costume shop is gone. The little pork-sandwich eatery. The elementary school, too. In their place some Walgreens, Rite-Aid, CVS.
Why so big? Do we need to sell groceries with drugs? Toys and sportings goods? Corridors of greetings cards?
So you know it’s coming … the fast food drive-thru at your pharmacy. “You want fries with that Nexxium? Oh, and here’s a coupon for a free deductible on any new cholesterol medication!”
Here’s another “You know it’s coming”: Talking and singing food. (Another I have to go back and illustrate.)
