Good Riddance, Ralphs

Like everyone else, I've been scouring the news for updates about the Obama cabinet appointments. All the political shuffling is fascinating, and I like to keep an eye on who's tapped to fill the vacancies opened up by upfilling other posts.

So far no biggies from California. In the Clinton days we saw Warren Christopher, Leon Panetta, and Norm Mineta pegged to work for the administration. Could it be that ever since California became a safe blue state, there's no need to reward us with coveted top spots in Washington?

My other eye is focused on local supermarket succession. The old Ralph's supermarket at Santa Ana's Bristol Marketplace is finally getting leased up. The cramped Northgate Market down the road on 17th will be relocating to the larger digs.


That was the worst Ralph's anywhere...horrible food selection. Northgate's going to liven up the retail center. They're a class act.

I gotta wonder what market will now take up the Northgate Market lease once they move out of their current building. In my fantasy world, a Primo's market will expand from their Oceanside territory into the Northgate location. Primo' salsa ANYWHERE!
