Here's the basic idea. Just sell me my blueberries and let me go. We'll both be happier.
Back when I was much younger, a local grocery store took the step of having a few check out aisles where there were not tobacco products for sale. This was seen as a good thing, and I tend to agree. That seems quaint now that that stuff is now over in another section of most stores, but that was a big thing back then.

I am a peaceful, tolerant man. I know nothing about this person except that this is a face even a Quaker could punch.
My Yahoo front page could not wait to tell me about Perez Hilton, celebrity blogger, and his suit against the manager of the Black Eyed Peas. Apparently there was some face punching going on.
