How sad - having to steal baby formula.

How SAD ??? I guess the idea that they were going to SELL it didn't come before your automatic liberal kneejerk response. I will agree though that they could use some "resources"...and those "resources" are their reflections in their mirror. What may occur to you that it's also "SAD" that theft and prevention costs are paid for by shoppers in these stores whose profit margins are slim. Also in some "communities", 60=% of children are born to single mothers and 70 % of prisoners are born to single mothers. Kids of all colors doing the right thing working minimum wage at KFC, Blockbuster, etc, and people like me who never took an unearned dime have this on our backs in the taxes paid for others criminality and ignorance !!!
