Walmart doesn't sell walls...
So the L.A. Times has this series of articles on Walmart and how it's great at slashing prices but it's killing the rest of the world as far as labor laws and running companies out of business right here in America. Just so people can buy a pair of pants for $5. No wonder the rest of the world hates us.

It's a great series of articles - very in depth. The funny thing is I just got this email list of "store specials" - check this out - for day after Thanksgiving - and no wonder people shop at Walmart - damn everything's under $5.

I have never been to a Walmart, there aren't too many in L.A. - if there are they are far away. I don't know if I'd shop there anyway - seems like hicksville - but the rest of the country seems to love it, so who knows. I hear they are going to start expanding into California anyday now with their new giant stores that sell groceries - thus the reason for this whole California grocery strike. My brother has always praised the BIG Kmart cause one day he went and bought a pair of pants and a birthday cake - both at the same time. He thought that was the bomb. Maybe now he'll shop at Walmart.
