WALGREENS???????? Is the paint even dry on that place? Their inclusion cheapens the other great businesses who actually have been part of our town, as opposed to a "branch location." Weak sauce.

Walgreen's contributions to Madison include increased competition for local pharmacies and a traffic hazard at the intersection of Greenwood and Main. I can't think of any reason to give them an award.
