Is Wal-Mart good for America?

Short answer: No. The longer, very interesting answer comes from PBS' Frontline. The complete video of the show is available online. I just watched it, and recommend it, even though the video stream got interrupted a bunch of times.

Wal-Mart is trying to build a new stupor store in Pittsfield Township, just east of Saline, about eight miles south of Ann Arbor. My nephew's sister-in-law and her husband are part of the battle against it; if I find out anything we can do to keep the Beast of Bentonville out of Saline, I'll let you know! (I assume you're already not shopping at Wal-Mart.)
