Targeting Target

Yesterday's Boston Globe reported that Target stores will not allow the Salvation Army to have its bell-ringers and kettles displayed at the entrances to the stores.

Folks in the blogosphere, like Hugh Hewitt are throwing a collective hissy fit although James Lileks has his head screwed on correctly.

So far I have not seen anyone give sufficient credit to Target for its generous contributions to many programs including its St. Jude Hospital program for the holidays that is prominently displayed on its website.

Grow up, people. If you want to support the Salvation Army, cut them a check or donate online.

As for me, I will be making a purchase of an electronic appliance at the Target store in West Covina this afternoon.
