In and around Flint, Michigan, the Valley can only refer to the Genessee
Valley Mall, which was built around 1970 and one of the first megamalls in
Michigan, as in "I went to the Valley and stopped at every store, but no
one was hiring." (circa 1982).

Please note my *new* email address: stevekl at panix.com -- you can start
using it now. (Note the letter l -- it's stevekl). I'll be unsubbing from
shore.net toward the end of the summer.
