Moral Degradation

Last week I went to the local grocery store to pick up some lunch. While looking for food there, I was appalled at what I saw.

We live in a fairly conservative area of the country. It's a Christian community where I NEVER expected to see this. To be fair, there are a few strip clubs in the area and at least one sex shop, but what I saw in the grocery store was completely uncalled for. After all, this is the grocery store, where mothers and children shop. It is grossly unfair to put mothers in a position where they have to explain certain things to their children.

I was looking for a peanut/raisin/granola mix while wandering up and down the aisles and looking at the signs hanging at the front of each aisle. It was about the sixth aisle where I saw the entry on the sign. I was so appalled, I didn't even go down the aisle. Doing so would have given the sort of tacit approval that the grocery store definitely does NOT need.

The second item on the hanging placard, right after "cereal" was "Adult Cereal". I can only hope that the boxes were on the top shelf and had brown paper sleeves over them.

Reminds me of the "LOOSE GRAVEL" signs back home.
