Comfort in Trying Economic Times

On this National Grammar Day Eve, when the country is watching the stock market collapse and jobs evaporate in startling numbers, we look to none other than Wal-Mart for comfort, because they're selling "stationary" right next to the party supplies.
Even though it might look like everything good is going away (certainly all the parties have), a little scrap of stability is there in black and white. Thank you, Wal-Mart. And thanks to Karen S. for the photographic proof.*

Now if only we knew where the stationery was...we'd really like to send a thank-you note.

*Yes, we know it looks like "Stationap." This is not a word. And while we would pay money for a nap (preferably not at a station of any sort), it's not something that Wal-Mart is selling. Not yet, anyway.
