Thank you for participating in my poll, inspired by my (futile) attempt last week to find a pair of black flat Mary Janes, or ballet shoes. Regarding availability of MJs and ballet flats, an overwhelming majority of you feel that:
Every shoe store should stock at least 5 styles of each. Failure to do so is an outrage. Actually, it's a crime against humanity of so great a magnitude that its implications will only be fully comprehended by future generations.
This poll is closed now; I am thinking of another one, in which I will solicit your opinion on suitable penalties for the perpetrators of automated telemarketing calls. Among the less-severe options will be imprisonment for life.
