Starlight bites the dust

A moment of silence please for Starlight Video on the west side and out east on Murray.

It was one of the last mom-and-pop holdouts against the Blockbusters. These independents have made most of their money from porn over the past decade or two. Because Blockbuster won't touch porn, it left a niche for them.

But growing competition online and expanding chains that have a more permissive attitude toward porn have been driving out the surviving independents.

At least we still have Toons, Carefree Video, Suncoast and Video World.

Go check them out while they're still around.
