  • I'm not sure if one-dollar beers qualify as a "Need." Any kind of Need.
    I'm definitely not sure if they're one of the three Needs. But I've surely appreciated them from time to time.

    This sign still hangs over the old haunt. The Needs are not gone. (That's almost too hard to imagine just now.)
    They've only moved up and over a few blocks. To a great new space.

    Still the sign hangs here. The same place as it ever was.
    As if the changing face of town gets another breath ... or two ... before the old memories are gone.

    And ... ... I'm still sure I don't know what the Three Needs really are.
