To Mart or not to mart

That is the question.

I was reading this bit at BC about Garth Brooks now selling his music exclusively through Wal-Mart. This may or may not be a sign of Armageddon, but it is another example of how the retail giant continues to take over everything!

So that lead me to researching older articles I read about the evils of Wal-Mart. Mind you, I personally have nothing against Wal-Mart. I do know some people who would not be caught dead in one of them, and not for any noble save the world economy jazz either. Those that boycott the chain because of their principles do make some strong arguments. Read on for more on the Wal-Mart issue.

ps..I was always a Sears kind of guy myself...

Attention -present and former female employees of Wal-Mart or Sam's Club:

Have you been denied equal pay for equal work?
Have you been getting the run-around about promotions or raises?
Have you hit the glass ceiling?
If you worked for Wal-Mart at any time since December 26, 1998, you may have legal claims in a class action sex discrimination lawsuit against Wal-Mart. Learn more!

(reminds me of another company I was once told did me wrong and I should sue.)
