Re: NYT Editorial: Don't Blame Wal-Mart
There was a great article in Slate a few months ago about the Costco/Walmart divide. Anyhow, I've noticed the Target thing too. The nearest Target for San Franciscans is in suburban Colma. We treat a "Target-run" as guilty pleasure.
And as much as I like Robert Reich, I don't thing the article adds much to the debate. I don't want a Walmart in town, but if its already here, sure I'll save a few pennies and make the most of a bad situation. People vote with their pocketbook, they also vote with, well, their votes.
