Machines for Selling | Comment Magazine | Cardus

I grew up in a town with the 'family market'- Lee's grocery. Our family had an account (a small notepad behind the counter, on which the clerk would write the date and amount). In the back was the meat counter where you could order a bologna sandwich. Everyone in the store knew our family, by name. I miss Lee's.
