A possible suspect in the Tinley Park/Lane Bryant murders has been arrested. My former colleague Liz makes a compelling point about the incident:

There is a very particular atmosphere in LBs, common to any place that serves a specific customer base, I guess, but with its own big girl flavor. There's some commonly-shared intent that gets you there, and the mood reflects that--it can be strangely intimate and communal. It's also just a store too, but still--LBs by definition already in many ways feel like havens from the rest of the world.
