Crazy Jose

For reasons unknown, I never noticed this before, but near the Jamaica station there is a store called Crazy Jose’s Electronics. Curiosity compels me to ask: what on earth would compel someone to patronize a store named after an al-Qaida suspect? Okay, I see the upside. Maybe Jose is so crazy that you walk in and he gives you a new Marantz component system for free. But what about the downside? You walk in, and Crazy Jose thinks you look like the dog who orders him to do his bidding. Before you know it, you’re felled in a hail of broken Sansui tape decks. It really doesn’t seem to be worth the risk.
