Apr 17th 2009 2:45PM How any self respecting person can get excited about pricey clothes, cupcakes and other useless stuff in this economy is beyond me. As a local in Malibu, I am disgusted by the loss of our small businesses and the lumberyard. We have to waste gas to drive 30 minutes each way to get a fricking hammer and nails. This is progress? A green shopping center cannot make up for the loss of what really matters in our town ...small town local businesses who actually care about us. No one I know in Malibu is rich.
