The Death of Something

This story made me sadder than I expected it too. There's the simple fact of having seen someone regularly for an extended period of time that makes that person's passing resonate. But it also works as an allegory for the fate of so many people who went to college and were "disciplined" into the margins or worse, not to mention of the Telegraph Ave. area itself, which has lost Tower and The Gap in recent months -- not a huge loss there, but a loss nonetheless -- and is now going to lose Cody's too. And you know how I'm drawn to texts that can be read allegorically.
