Re: Holyoke Mall Now a Weekend No-Teenager Zone
01 Aug 2005
I've lived in New England and the Mid-West and I have heard many "heat wave" warnings that advise people to stay indoors, to use air conditioners and to drink lots of liquids, to stay out of the sun.

I have also heard warnings given that tell people who don't have air-conditioning, i.e. are poor, to go to places like malls or movie theatres where they can sit out the heat of the day when the highest risk of dehydration or death are.

Not only is this an ironic racially and ageist related bit of discrimination, it's also something that discriminates against poor.

Gotta love those grasping hands of corporate america. No window shopping and a/c hitchhiking for you!
