    With apologies for cross-posting

    In response to local ordinances banning the sale of mercury fever and basal
    thermometers, K-Mart has decided to stop selling these thermometers
    nationally, according to our local district office.

    K-Mart is to be congratulated for their progressive stand We will encourage
    them to discontinue selling mercury thermostats as well, and will ask other
    stores selling these items to follow the lead of K-Mart.
