Instead of being grateful for the free groceries they were entitled to, countless Louisiana people took advantage of a computer glitch and went hog wild on Saturday loading up cart after cart at WalMart since their cards didn't show a spending limit. Personally I would think that should disqualify them from collecting food stamps in the future, but officials still haven't decided how to handle it. I don't think it's fair to expect taxpayers to pick up the tab here. Frown

They took video of some of the carts that people were about to "steal," but had to abandon once the jig was up. OMG!
