'A tank of regular and a pipe of premium, please'

San Antonio Lightning readers probably recognize the signature punny headline up there, which arrived in my inbox this a.m. R.G. Griffing and his crew have a new post up about a local Valero store that's selling pipes -- "near the 'munchie aisles.'"

According to the story, San Antonio-based Fortune 500 company Valero asked the store, which the Lightning says is independently owned but branded Valero, to remove the paraphernalia in December after the Lightning brought it to the company's attention.

Griffing's a libertarian at heart (also an animal lover), so I'm a little surprised to find him on this side of the drug war. But it's good news for local head shops, which don't need the competition from convenience chains.
