note: this post began as a link roundup, but the topics were so far-flung, I broke them all out into separate posts.
The glass-half-empty crowd at Consumerist is treating the shrinking Pampers count as a sneaky, 5% price increase [from 23.7 cents per diaper to 25 cents, in the $20 case example they cite].
