Hmmm ....

"Wal-Mart told about 7,000 associates of the plans at a conference last
month and "was met with rapturous applause."

Does that mean they all left?

and then there's this ...

"As at Wal-Mart, Macy's employees are encouraged to consider wishing
customers holiday greetings that are appropriate to their race or
religion, including Happy Kwanzaa or Feliz Navidad."

Employees better consider becoming pretty damn good at figuring out the
ethnicity and cultural tendencies of the customers or this could get
pretty awful.
