Worthless Factoid of the Day

WORTHLESS FACTOID OF THE DAY….From the LA Times this morning:

There are now twice as many Target stores within a five-mile radius of the District (four) than there are in Wyoming (two).

The “District” is a new million-square-foot shopping center that’s going up on the old Tustin Marine Base a few miles from my house. In fact, that’s where Marian and I were last night, shopping for a new microwave oven. Did you know that apparently every microwave oven currently manufactured uses a turntable? Million square feet or no, we couldn’t find a single one that was turntable free. Maybe we need two million square feet?
