94. Don't just hope. Lobby your state legislators.
In January, when people regain their sanity, ad hoc committees need to be formed in every state to lobby that these "quantities strictly limited" sales be outlawed as the variation of "bait and switch" that they are. I intend to help create one in my state that will issue press releases. Of course, the large retailers will oppose the measure, but the recent incident should keep most voters in favor of outlawing those sales.

I would like to request anyone that works for or shops that Wal-Mart to message me if the same items in Friday's sale show up in the store next week (at any price). That would demonstrate that the purpose of the sale was not to advertise an item that Wal-Mart only had a few of, but simply to inflame shoppers.
