Dear Container Store, I Almost Loved You
MELISSA BLOCK, Host:

Commentator Pat Dunnigan went to the flagship store in Dallas, and flirted briefly with the idea of putting her house in order.
PAT DUNNIGAN: It is not your fault. The underside of the couch emits a strange gravitational pull. It is stronger than both of us. It doesn't take much to see that the storage problems of one suburban household don't amount to a cannister of beans in this crazy world. Some day, you'll understand that. We'll always have Dallas.
