Everything Old Is New Again

From the conclusion of the AP story on the vandalism of the downtown Takoma Park Subway store in 2004 -
And some residents feel Takoma Park needs to lighten up a bit when it comes to corporate chains. Abby Alcott, a 16-year resident, said she tries to support local merchants. But there is one big name she would welcome.
"Frankly, I'd like to have a Starbucks," she said. "I love Starbucks."
It would appear that the same vandals also targeted stores in Four Corners and downtown Silver Spring, but those places probably make for less interesting national stories.
