The Crap Shack is nothing like its former self, not that it has ever 
been great as its former self. They have become nothing more than a 
seller of cell phones and toys.  They hardly have any stereos, radios, 
parts, cable - it's just about gone.  I only go there when desperate and 
I have to be pretty hard-up to walk in there for anything.

We have the Debco parts store here in Cincinnati.  They do a big 
phone/web business also and have a very good selection.  Not on the 
scale of a Mouser, but they have been very good as a parts source for

"Republicans (I think to myself) are conservatives who think it would be best if we faced the fact that people are no damned good. They think that if we admit that we have selfish, acquisitive natures and then set out to get all we can for ourselves by working hard for it, that things will be better for everyone. They are not insensitive to the poor, but tend to think the poor are impoverished because they won't work. They think there would be fewer of them to feel sorry for if the government did not encourage the proliferation of the least fit among us with welfare programs." -- Andy Rooney
