On Walmart.

The big local buzz is: Walmart

As in, it opens today.

Now I have mixed feeling about this, mostly negative. They pay crap, they don't allow their employees to unionize, they sell cheap crap at cheap crap prices, they put small local businesses out of business.

On the other hand, there are times when cheap crap is what you need, and the other cheap crap cartelle (Kmart) went under last year sometime.

And to be honest, I will be a devotee if they have art supplies. And clothes that fit me that don't cost $75.

I can't say I much like their business practices, but I'm an art supply junky, so we'll see how they stack up. I understand half the population of Fairbanks is over there today and they've knocked the speed limit on the expressway down to 45 mph on their block.
