Good news from South Central LA

The LA Times has a good story about some good news from Compton, a suburb of Los Angeles (LA has lots of suburbs - there are 88 cities in Los Angeles County) more famous for violence than good news. A new shopping center has been built, and has brought some prominent national retailers, including Best Buy and Target. And Starbucks! And there's a new Fresh & Easy, which is a British chain of supermarkets. The debut of Fresh & Easy was quite the affair - Prince Andrew opened it up.

We don't hear a lot of positive things coming out of Compton, so this is good to read. And kudos to the LA Times for publishing it.
