Will the closing of New York City's most popular shop help the bagel find itself again?

"The bagel is a symbol of assimilation at any cost" http://ti.me/ilJkK5 (via @counternotions) How the HELL does this qualify as "news?"
H&H bagels closed down? What's next, no pizza? http://t.co/62oA4WR In other news, the i-detox was interesting, but ultimately, anticlimatic.
"There are few foods that are truly unique to New York, and the bagel is one of them." http://t.co/YVh9oTD Pffffft, Montrealers say "Quoi?!"
