Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.

Indoor malls make sense in the American midwest because it gets so damn cold in the winter. Believe me, it's convenient when the temperature is below zero (Fahrenheit!). A lot of the modern malls here in northern California are outdoor because the weather is temperate year round.

The mall is well served with busses and light rail, so actually, a lot of poor and working class people that don't own cars shop there. The counterpoint is that their own neighborhoods are not well served, which I won't deny.

You can certainly walk around the inside - it's great exercise.

I'm not a big fan of malls, but calling it a pit of human despair is a bit much. Despair is violence, unemployment, starvation, those kinds of things. Malls  are a misallocation of material resources more than a human evil.

you are the media you consume.
