Interesting thought as well.

I saw that..

Was slightly disappointed (in the typographers) that a few of the "letters" required multiple districts.

Redbox is pretty good. Small selection, but you order what you want and they hold it for you.

An example of how innovation works. That Redbox does what once required a giant store and many humans. Even Netflix innovated, moved on, and therefore survives profitably.

This says for 2019 but may be premature unless it's really the results from 2018.

Goodwill takes all of our old stuff, and sells us more stuff. The Goodwill stores around hire Special needs employees, and trains people to get and keep jobs. I don't consider Goodwill a charity.
