I‘ve resisted writing this for a couple of years. Today, July 20, 2013, I can put it off no longer. As a resident of Mt.

I used to do all of my grocery shopping at one of our local stores. As I entered the store recently, I saw a nice display of many cantaloupe in a large box. A sign with the bold numerals “99 cents” was on the front of the box. I bought one. When I got home I was surprised to look at my receipt and see I was charged $1.49 for the melon.
