The Starting Five, 2/5/2014

Posted on Wed, Feb 5, 2014 at 10:56 AM

The Five was on a two-hour delay this morning. Sorry.

CVS has decided that it doesn't make sense to have Minute Clinics in the same store that sells Cancer Murder Fire Sticks of Tobacco Death, so guess what they're not selling anymore? Farewell, Mr. Marllboro and Ms. Virginia Slim. (Do they even still make those?)

RadioShack aired a multi-million-dollar ad during the Super Bowl. While it was nice to give Cliff Clavin and Alf some work, the company then announced they'd be closing 500 stores. Yeah, you've gotta be stoked to see the company that's about to lay you off drop seven figures on a TV commercial.

Don't know if you've heard, but staying in Sochi to cover the Olympics kinda sucks.

Okay, okay, it's not as bad as covering, say, the war in Afghanistan, but JESUS.

Snow got ya down? Steven Colbert + Pussy Riot = happy.
