Type "Westminster Mall" and "ghetto" into Google, and hits come back describing the enclosed, two-level place as such—but "ghetto" like The Wire, not the ghetto fabulousness of Sly Stone, Gil-Scott Heron or Oscar Gamble and the greatest 'fro e-vah. Westminster Mall has a Fanzz and an eBuy-Gold and a Charley's Steakery and an As Seen on TV and a LoveD and a Piercing Pagoda and a Rolly Polly and a Warehouse Furniture Outlet and even stores found at every other goddamn mall in Orange County. One anchor is JC Penney—or JCP, as the hip ghetto kids call it—which also used to be at every other goddamn mall in Orange County. Westminster Mall rose in 1974, when malls were malls and not "experiences." If that makes it ghetto these days, show us the way, brother.
