I think we will soon find out (as will David Hogg) that this behavior and spotlight will very soon become addictive — with his doing more and more stuff of error, just to remain in the spotlight. We’re in for a long haul with this kid’s increasing lunacy, which is following the misguided philosophy that it’s better to be stupid-popular than not popular at all. And, go Publix! As a local to them, I have to say, this is singularly the most intelligent, well run company I have ever seen. Read an article on them once in local business trade… Read more »
