Yeah, Pete's got some priority issues, methinks.
Calvin, I lived for two years in the town of Angelica, NY in Allegany County, working at a Blockbuster Video inside either a Wegman's or Topp's grocery store (I forget which) in Wellsville, and an FYE in Olean, while attending grad. school at ALFRED UNIVERSITY and student teaching in Bath.
I know all too well that Upstate NY has many nowheres to be in the middle of.
The only comic shop was a hole in the wall (literally) in Olean. The place was small, and a mess, with no real pattern to what went where. They would take PREVIEWS orders, but they were bitter about it.
Ah, good times...good times...
