    I can’t wait for the all-out specialty grocery war that is bound to erupt between the Madison Market and Trader Joe’s. Rainbow Grocery benefits from my laziness that prevents me from walking down to MM, but the existence of a Trader Joe might motivate me to go the extra blocks for cheap good foodstuffs.
