Oak Park dreams of conspicuous consumption

Borders bookstores will be closing soon, including the one in Oak Park that drove out nearby price-gouger Barbara's. Oak Parkers are whining about the loss while dreaming of alternatives that could fill the vacant space. Will it be an electric car dealership? A two-story Starbucks burnt coffee superstore? Or a spankin' new Apple Store for the sheeple? ("We think it's a no-brainer site for [Apple]," says the village manager. Sounds like a match made in heaven.)

  1. I wouldn't mind an electric car dealership. I've been wanting to see some of those up close.
