Walgreen's sucks

So I went to Walgreen's yesterday and was stopped dead by a display of fun blood: IV bags of blood, complete with tubing at the bottom and a close-off clip. Wtf? Why, it's Halloween candy. Grape flavored, or maybe it was cherry, to be sucked out of the tubing. Liquid. Like blood, real blood, the kind that saves lives, that keeps people -- cancer patients, accident victims, other folks we know and love -- alive. Congratulations, Walgreen's, on keeping your eye on the bottom line; it's important to rake in every penny you can get, no matter how disgusting the product.
