Don't Blame Wal-Mart
There are some folks who really don't want to see a new Wal-Mart Superstore show up here in Bend. I understand everybody's gripe about it, but I'm sorry: I'm like most Americans and like low prices. I like supporting the local community, and do when I can, but, for the most part, I go wherever is easy and cheap (two things that will be more available since the new Wal-Mart will be about two miles from my house).
Should we really be blaming Wal-Mart when Americans like low prices? I don't think so. Besides, they are really good at getting federal funding for projects, so maybe they can help us out a bit.
