Well, it's been a rough couple of days, let me tell you. No bad things happened, I've just been physically messed up. I spent yesterday asleep on the sofa.
Which put me in the perfect prone position for watching Penn and Teller's Bullshit, which I do love, even though they are unrepentant white male libertarians, because even though they manage to get some things wrong, they are smart enough to admit when they're wrong (such as their episode on Global Warming). Last night, they showed a repeat of their pro-WalMart show. The part that stood out for me was when a pair of anti-WalMart people held up a blatantly mean t-shirt they had made depicting what they saw as the "typical" WallyWorld shopper. It was classist. It's this attitude I want to address today, not whether WalMart is good or not, because I can't make that call for anyone.
