My left arm has seceded from my body and is planning to go on a solo air guitar tour of the Midwest. At least, I assume that's why it's alternately hurting and numb.
I honestly wasn't expecting the reaction I got yesterday for a dashed-off early morning post, but thanks for all the thoughtful answers. My original point, which was obscured by my use of WalMart as an example, was that when people have a legitimate dislike for something, they also have an unpleasant tendency to launch personal attacks on the people that use that thing. My example, though poorly chosen, was the characterization of people who shop at WalMart as ignorant tasteless rubes.
