Radio Shack served us well for so many years and now I guess it is time to 
kick them in the teeth.

This cynicism is becoming all too common these days.

Just think of  the many employees that will lose their jobs!

Oh, well, typical of our culture and the social media to "bump your gums." 
Many of us should be like a dog who wags his tail and not his mouth!
