Speaking of EPIC FAIL - this one definitely takes the top prize!
I was going through the top stories of the week and found this little gem hidden amongst a flurry of other headlines like Tiger's return to greatness or the must see movie of the weekend. The article might be short, but it definitely puts the current state of mind into perspective.
You see, there once was a little drugstore - called Divine Mercy Care - that opened in October 2008. At only 1,500 square feet, the store is definitely smaller than your average CVS. That didn't bother the owners, though, because this pro-life Catholic drugstore had other goals in mind.
I think it is obvious where this is going (even more obvious if you read the linked article) but here goes...the store didn't carry birth control, condoms, cigarettes or porno magazines. Not only that, but they also didn't sell cosmetics, toys or food items.
Now, I don't know about you...but when I want porno - I go online, cosmetics are best bought at MAC, toys are for Toys R Us, and food is purchased at the grocery store (or McDonald's if I'm super hungry). I have never been one to smoke, but I can imagine that most people purchase those at a gas station...while the lack of birth control and condoms is what gave the man and I the babe :) In addition, anything I've ever purchased at a drugstore is way more than what I could buy it for elsewhere.
I know that most people do get prescriptions filled - and such - at said drugstores...but there are mail order services for that too - nowadays...
Is it just me, or does it seem like CVS (et al.) should be going out of business also??
