To me, this is a laugh-out-loud moment. I agree with Jason Williams, above. Who determines that "Breaking Bad" is BAD, but "Walking Dead" is OK? More perplexing, is a "Breaking Bad" doll worse than a "Grand Theft Auto" video game? Not in my book!

Either put it on the shelf...

BTW...I also saw this app in a McDonald's in France.

McD's future is not about app-based ordering. To repeat a previous post...Consumer Reports rated 65 fast food chains. Readers ate 96,208 meals. The question posed to participants was simple: "On a scale of 1 to 10, from least delicious to...

"Fast Food" was coined in the 1950s, not because the preparation was fast (which it was), but because it was served fast. There have even been commercials promising speed. The next "fast" was drive through. Now we have mobile. This is a logical evolution made possible by technology. The...

Income disparities may be somewhat of a factor. How much food can the top 1 percent eat?

But the real underlying factor is probably demographics. As the population ages, there will be less family formation. In the next 15 years the number of people in the U.S. middle class will...

It is a "nice perk," but I don't know how really valuable it is in terms of women taking advantage of it. And yes, as Cathy says, "there is a whiff of 'don't get pregnant.'"

But it does send a message of trying to meet the needs of women and...

Walmart builds the business where the business is going to be. Even if "foot traffic"...

I know it is not reality nor does it make business model sense, but does it strike anyone else that is is somewhat demeaning to be payed a wage so low that you can't afford to buy what they are selling?

But, back to economics. Adding dollars to the economy...

I am astounded by the survey!

I can't think of anyone I know who actually enjoys grocery shopping. Most people I know see it as a necessary burden and an infringement on time. If they didn't have to do, it they would not.

...

I can not add anything more than my colleagues. I am on the side of labor for this one.

But, I assure you, if the Supreme Court backs labor, the 30 minute wait will quickly disappear and an alternative security solution will be instituted that provides appropriate security and doesn't...

Those who prefer Publix will shop at Publix, with or without BOGO. Those who prefer Walmart will shop at Walmart, with or without BOGO. Those who shop at both (a tip of the hat to Steve's mother) will BOGO at Publix and price shop at Walmart.

There is a great...
