Doing The Right Thing

We expect too much of our politicians.

They're not the only ones with power. And legislation isn't the only way of effecting social change. For instance while the US politicians were agonising and weaselling over gun control the bosses at Walmart and Dick's simply went ahead and changed their sales policy.

What does it say about the health of a democracy when its shop keepers are more sensitive than its elective representatives to what the public wants?
