What is he feeling about "e" cigarettes? The one criticism I heard is that one is still ingesting nicotine, which smooths the way for the smoker to switch to real cigarettes.


I wonder what CVS's take will be. They might or might not drop them if they consider them to be tobacco. Personally, I doubt the criticism is valid, though. There is just no counting the flavors available. Cigarettes are pretty much menthol or tobacco flavored, so I'm not seeing the gateway effect. Anyway, smoking is pretty harsh if you're not used to it.

we knew that logic was done years ago when the anti smoking zealots began to claim actionable personal harm by seeing a smoker in the act. Back when they had to smell the smoke to claim harm there was at least a chance that reality would back them up.

U.S. consumers are generally less satisfied when they go shopping, according to the latest American Customer Satisfaction Index (ACSI) report released on Wednesday. Overall satisfaction with the retail experience dropped for the first time in four years. The overall decline was about 1.5 percent. Brick-and-mortar stores had flat or lower scores. Only online retailers are up from a year ago.

"It's not huge, but it's definitely significant," said ACSI director David VanAmburg. "A lot of this is due to higher prices, especially for non-discretionary items."

Here are the rankings for national chains in the various categories covered by this survey of more than 8,700 shoppers:

Drug Stores: Rite Aid's score jumped five percent to 78, Walgreens hit the industry average (77) and CVS Caremark dipped to 75. Smaller drug stores rated higher than the national average

so not only do they give up gobs of money but they did not even get the touchy feelies that they were expecting. Serves the idiots right.
