What happened to Lincoln Mall?

I spoke with reporter Guy Tridgell about Lincoln Mall, and the shift of the mall culture in general, and what leads to the demise of the mall, or the consequence, depending on how you look at it.

Lincoln Mall is sick. The piped music and the shiny floors, the jewelry stores occupying every corner and the kiosks selling watches and cell phones tell you the mall is doing just fine.

The dusty silhouetted names of past tenants on the storefronts, the stores that no one has heard of before, the geese roosting on top of the old Montgomery Ward building tell you something else.
