My Walmart Story

Gerard of American Digest has the tale of how he visited New England last winter, and was shocked to discover that at Wal-Mart, you can buy a good winter coat for $7. Something you can't do in Seattle, because the local hippies have banned Wal-Marts.

On my end, Wal-Mart saved me a few years back, when I had to drive 5 hours to attend a funeral, and realized around hour 4 that I did NOT remember to pack dress shoes to go with my suit o' mourning.

So I pulled off a more-or-less random exit, on the assumption that most small-ish towns in northern Wisconsin have a Wal-Mart on the outskirts of town, somewhere on the main drag.

I was right. Wal-Mart was there, and I had a pair of suitable shoes for $25 within 15 minutes of hitting the exit ramp.

God bless capitalism.

God bless Wal-Mart.

    has been discussed for decades. Great stuff, just wonderful!
