Writer's Block: Supersize me

Have you ever boycotted a company or product? If so, what was it, and what caused you to boycott it?
Wal-Mart. They treat their employees like recycled crap, they moved from selling Made In America stuff to crap made in China like everyone else, and most evil: they move into small towns and ruin the local economy by out-competing all the local businesses.

More on how they treat employees: 1. They have almost no full-time jobs. 2. Their breaks suck as a result. 3. They take out life insurance policies on employees without telling the employees, and listing themselves as beneficiaries. No, I don't have a link for the last item, but they have indeed been caught doing that.

Writer's Block: Where I want to be

What was your childhood dream? Did you ever accomplish it?
I already answered this one, but I have to answer it again because I realized earlier today that as a child I *did* have a career in mind. I wanted to be a teacher. I have no idea how clear I was on what I wanted to teach, but I found many clear memories of wanting to be a teacher.
