Why is it so hard to find a pair of underwear in my neighborhood? Underwear is about as necessary as toilet paper, yet I can't buy it in this densely populated pocket of Portland. I can buy groceries, hardware, clothes, 16 different varieties of Thai food, gas, shoes, 150 types of socks, but not underwear. I'm not talking fancy panties or silk boxers. I'd spring for those if they were for sale, but they aren't. I just want to buy a cheap pair of cotton underwear. I'd be happy to purchase them at the Plaid Pantry, a local thrift store, your food cart, or when I am getting an oil change. Are there any entrepreneurs out there who want to start a mobile underwear cart? You might become more popular than the ice cream man.—Anonymous
