Did anyone else notice the sign in the background that says “Run It Better, Inc., CPA”?

They have “benevolent ass’ns” in Chinatowns up and down the West Coast. There are large, prominent pagoda-ish “benevolent association” buildings in Sacramento, in Portland, in Los Angeles, and probably elsewhere. Not sure what one does in a benevolent ass’n, but I suppose it’s better than a malevolent ass’n.

Just learned there’s one in my hometown: https://cabaoregon.wordpress.com/
It appears to be nothing but a Chinese-American club. Boy, does that ruin the fun in not knowing.

Now I’m looking for the malevolent ass’n. I presume I won’t find it in Chinatown; I’ll have to go all the way to 9th and Hennepin! (Super-obscure musical reference)

Oh wait a minute…I know what the malevolent ass’n is! It’s the Kan Fuk Family Ass’n!
