The Human Face of Progress - Terry

It's not often you read about someone turning down a million dollars. This is a story we have been following for some time now. I drive right past this house on my way to many places, so I think of this woman and her battle to stay in her house, against all odds, including a new Trader Joe’s and a new fitness club. Edith Macefield died Sunday and did, in fact, get to “die at home, in the same house, on the same couch, where her mother had died,” according to her friend. Check out the story at the Seattle Times. Guilt upon my head for my excitement at having a new Trader Joe's within a mile of my home! (Alan Berner, The Seattle Times, took the photo.)
