Idea: Nix the Gossip Mags

Here’s an idea to help people feel a little better about their fellow humankind and themselves. What if the gossip tabloids at checkout counters were replaced with creative and inspiring publications? Instead of promoting tittle-tattle and schadenfreude, stores could help their customers feel good about themselves and others. Better to have happy customers than nervous, insecure ones, yes? Confident and inspired customers are more likely to return for more business.
