Color fads

Frit reads that Wal-Mart is in trouble for dropping the price of black Barbies to almost half that of white Barbies due to lack of demand. Frit had a similar experience recently when he shamelessly tried to cash in on the recent earthquakes by selling miniature models of Haitians and Chileans buried under rubble to journalists. The Haitian versions sold like hot cakes but there was very little interest in the Chileans, even at reduced prices.
