This evening, Mrs74 and I went to the world's largest employer to get a few items. When we went to check out we decided to use the self check outs. Everything scanned fine, then come the time to pay. I had two 20 dollar bills. The bill accepter didn't want either. That struck me as funny that the Evil Big Box Store(tm) wouldn't take my money.
Earlier in the day I was watching the NASCAR race. It was being run at Talladega, deep south, Dale Jr. country. Also very American. The race was won by Kyle Busch in the #18 M&M's Toyota. Second place was Juan Pablo Montoya. He's from Columbia, by the way.
Must be a cold day in the place of eternal punishment.
