Lemma 5.18.3. Let $X$ be a Kolmogorov topological space with a basis of quasi-compact open sets. If $X$ is not Jacobson, then there exists a non-closed point $x \in X$ such that $\{ x\}$ is locally closed.

Proof. As $X$ is not Jacobson there exists a closed set $Z$ and an open set $U$ in $X$ such that $Z \cap U$ is nonempty and does not contain points closed in $X$. As $X$ has a basis of quasi-compact open sets we may replace $U$ by an open quasi-compact neighborhood of a point in $Z\cap U$ and so we may assume that $U$ is quasi-compact open. By Lemma 5.12.8, there exists a point $x \in Z \cap U$ closed in $Z \cap U$, and so $\{ x\}$ is locally closed but not closed in $X$. $\square$
