I absolutely love the last sentence in this snippet of a Globe article on the closing of a Roxbury liquor store. It comes in the middle of a section describing those other than the store's owners who stand to lose income from the closure (the homeless who redeem their empties at the store, or who earn a few bucks a day sweeping up and running errands, for instance.) And then there's this fellow:
David Mays has even more to lose. The president of Tow Happy earns about $2,800 a week towing cars from Liquor Land's lot, where people visiting the hospital often park illegally. "There's no way I'll replace this income," he said, after nearly towing the car of a reporter who had been at the store.
This is amazingly beautiful because it tells the entire story right there.
