I was in a local supermarket yesterday, and while I was in the checkout line I noticed an ad on the wall for a store-brand debit card sorta thingy -- y'know, like you put money into a store account and then you use this card to pay for groceries until your account is empty. Right. Anyway, the name they'd given this program was "eScrip".
And it occured to me that, in a largely African-American community in the cotton belt, this name was probably not the best-thought-out idea ever. |
