Can we all please stop exempting Target from the scorn usually directed at that other Heartland mass marketer that destroys communities and imposes its peculiar values with its enormous leverage?

Because it doesn’t matter what your doctor thinks or what you decide you want to do with your body—the tender prudish morals of your pharmacist are all that really matters.
