Anita Van Buren Stopped Me in Walgreen's and Told Me to Buy a Uniball Pen for My Own Safety
Posted by Christine Hurt

OK, so this was weird.  I was in Walgreen's yesterday, stocking up on clear spray sunscreen (best invention ever) and nine-cent posterboard, when I heard the very familiar voice of Lt. Anita Van Buren (S. Epatha Merkerson) from Law and Order.  I thought for sure she was standing behind me and was going to send me back out on the street to get some more evidence, but instead she was a video recording and warned me about financial fraudsters.  Financial fraudsters who had special tools to erase my ink writings and to replace them!  On checks!  On anything!  But, if I always used a Uniball pen, then this couldn't happen because Uniball pen ink seeps into the very fabric of the paper.  Whew.  This was all from a video screen in the pen aisle.  So, of course I went to YouTube to look at it again.  Marketing genius strikes again.
