Perhaps there’s a reason for the moniker ‘starving vendors’

"They had no money. They all traded in their clunkers and bought new wheels and now they got their cars repossessed. Some of them just walked around and got fatter while others socialized or played with vendor's items. What else are they going to do? No money here or anyplace else in the valley. Economy is completely shot along 99 from Marysville to the Grapevine. Economically disadvantaged area and people just go through the motions. Tire-kickers, teenagers pushing strollers, overweight welfare moochers.... they're all there."
