The dramatic increase in the number of people who leave partially filled shopping carts in the aisles of major retailers has caused some store managers cause for alarm.
"We had to hire ten more people just to empty these carts" commented Bill Sands of the Peoria AZ Wall-Mart. "At one point the Automotive department was completely blocked by carts, trapping an elderly gentleman in the air filter aisle for an hour".
The problem has been more acute at Home Depot, where large carts loaded with building materials make many aisles virtually impassable.

While no solution has been found, Target plans to add a sticky grab bar to all its carts in the hope that they would be harder to leave behind.

Neither the Republican leadership or Lewinski had any comment on the allegations. The Senate will convene a special hearing on the matter. Senator Ted Kennedy, an expert on these issues, will spearhead the blue ribbon panel. More
