Target is a home-grown Minnesota corporation, so I guess that means I'm supposed to pat them on their proverbial head and say, "there there, it's okay".
Well, it's not okay..
I at least have the option of not going near healthcare.gov with a ten-foot pole, since I have insurance through my employer. And yes, I suppose I have the option of not shopping at Target, but it would have been nice of them to let me know what I was in for before my debit card number was potentially stolen.
I can understand the government not building security into its websites. After all, it's the government. Haplessness is their calling card. But a multimillion-dollar corporation?
Most galling to me is Target's lack of communication. My friend has received two email updates from them to date. I have received none. I guess my financial well-being is not as important as others'.

I'm surprised the "news story" didn't also list the low low prices on big-screen TV's and breakfast sandwich makers.
Ah, but what would Christmas be without anger?
Thanks, Target, for upholding that holiday tradition.

Well, I did it. Not only did I accomplish the goal of writing 14 songs in 28 days, but I actually wrote 16! So, here you go. They'...
What? Ray Stevens? The guy who did Gitarzan and The Streak? What do you mean, a genius? Isn't he just kind of corny? I sometimes thi...
