In the check out line turn the Enquirer upside down or put a magazine in front of it.

What goes around comes around.

1. Normally anything that would make a working person's life harder I would say no.

But this takes all of 2 seconds to move it back where they are supposed to have it so YES do this whenever possible.

2. Cute but not a bad idea actually! I couldn't find one in my grocery store so I don't think they...

sell it anymore. Which is much better.

3. I may start complaining about them selling a publication that blackmails people

I mostly shop at Publix which has very right wing executives but tends to respond to customer complaints. During the Reagan Administration I went into one of their stores and they had a big "JUST SAY NO TO DRUGS" banner hung over their cigarette display. I complained about the ridiculousness of campaigning against drugs when cigarettes addict and kill so many people. The next time I went in the banner was gone and withing a year they stopped selling cigarettes from the big open displays.

If I start complaining about National Enquirer, it will be interesting to see if that works - but I am not even sure if they still sell it at the registers any more.

6. I think Publix already hides them

They put them behind little plastic boards. At least they do in my area. It was written about here.

8. They might - I really don't pay attention to the magazines at the checkout

Sometimes I'll look at the ones with recipes but I've been on a drastic diet since September and have been avoiding those.

5. AMI owns many rags

I looked it up and the Star is one of them, as well as Radaronline and several others. Do it to all of them.
