The article (TNT, 12-16) about anonymous donors paying off people’s layaway accounts at Kmart touched me, especially the man with the three small children.

But then there was the woman who had laid away more than $200 of toys for her 4-year-old son. What 4-year-old needs hundreds of dollars worth of toys? Maybe there are details I don’t know about, but this was a “Bah, humbug” for me.
