    And... they glow in the dark! What recourse do the onlookers have, if not to turn off the lights??? :eye::eye:

    Okay, but really? I'd like a calculation of how many public servant hours are squandered on this type of marketing? I think the shoe companies should be billed. It's ridiculous. Same with all the other manufacturers that encourage the "camping outside for the latest release" of whatever the product is style of gorilla advertizing. We can't afford this carp right now!

    Grrrrrr, our dang infrastructure is crumbling and we're doing crowd control for "swag?" We're not too bright, imo. :cool:

    At least if they are going to rob stores and banks glowing, they should be easy to spot...:fence:
