(247) Shopping malls


CBS Evening News
carried a video feature the other day about the adaptation of shopping malls.  Such things as churches, offices, and in one case, a city hall are turning up in them.  It only makes sense in a country where there are too many malls and not enough money.   In terms of community life malls have been pretty serious underachievers but maybe don’t give up on them completely just yet.
