What the Soviet Safeway was out of today

Here is a list of things I wanted to buy at the Safeway on 17th Street but could not because they ran out:

  • Diet Pepsi
  • Jiffy Corn Bread Mix

Not a bad haul, compared to previous weeks. However, the fact that they can't keep soda on the shelves is pretty odd in a free-market democracy. I guess that's why they call it the Soviet Safeway.

I lived in Dupont/Adams Morgan from 1996-1998, and Soviet Safeway was on my way home from the bus stop, so I often stopped there. It had long lines, and nothing on the shelves, even then!
