No Business Like Shoe Business
LZ Granderson's column is titled, "Don't blame expensive shoes; LeBron, Nike won't be at fault if people fight over expensive footwear." While I think paying $200 or $300 for sneakers, or camping out for days to buy the latest technology, is ridiculous, manufacturers have the right to sell their stuff at whatever price they choose, and people who can afford it should be able to do so. But people who afford it have no business blaming the manufacturers instead of using common sense, saying 'no', and doing without. Unfortunately, that concept seems to be more rare than ever.
