The Man Who Said No To Wal-Mart

While, for the most part, every business wants their products to be sold at the 3,000+ Wal-Mart stores around the country, but I can very easily see why you wouldn't want to if you sold high-end quality equipment, and this is the story of one CEO who basically told Wal-Mart to pull his product line of Snapper lawn mowers (why you'd go to Wal-Mart to buy a lawn mower, I have no idea). Good commentary from both sides, calling him an idiot and some praising him (personally, while I don't mind Wal-Mart at all, and he's probably not going to win too many fans among his shareholders, I think he's got guts, that's for sure).

Thanks Josh for the link.
