A grocery shopping kerfuffle grows in Queens: our cousins at Eater NY report that "The last white person's supermarket in Flushing just closed. And the locals are sick and tired of all of the Asian marts that don't carry their Boar's Head bologna, Lean Cuisine, bagels, and Entenmann's. Things have become so tense that elected officials have gotten involved to broker negotiations between neighbors and the supermarkets." [Eater NY, WSJ]
