    without these chains. The mom and pop places that existed before were doing a good enough job keeping people fed.
      What's going on is the monopoly of commercially zoned land held by shopping center developers. The mom and pops are priced out on rent. Results: Higher prices for restaurant food, and culturally depressing standardization coast to coast (and now, around the world.)

      significantly less than the sadass imitations offered by PJ or any of the other chains. They don't run on quality or price, they run on advertising. How much does that tack onto the price of a PJ "pizza"?

      And those mom and pop joints actually provide a living to somebody besides overstuffed oligarchs in some other state.

      Remember what happened when we turned the country over to that dumbass rich kid? So now we're thinking about doing it again? Really?
