Apropos of nothing, Vero Beach, like many other cities around the United States, has a Miracle Mile shopping center. In our case, it is the main destination for grocery shoppers from across the Indian River Lagoon, where, for a lot of them, it makes for one of their rare visits to the mainland from their beachside homes. Miracle Mile is also the name of a 1988 atomic apocalypse film where a stray phone call announcing that nuclear bombs will start falling in seventy minutes starts a panic leading to a rather terminally depressing ending in more ways than one. If you are expecting there to be a connection between the film and the shopping center, well, there is not one.
