Wal-Mart's governor

Posted By on Fri, Aug 18, 2006 at 3:33 PM

The Huckster has made it clear he won't join various politicians -- including his old running buddy Tom Vilsack of Iowa -- urging Wal-Mart in a national campaign to treat its employees well. This link on his website gives the summary; the link to the full document is not working but his office says it should be corrected soon.

An Arkansas governor kissing Wal-Mart behind is not exactly man-bites-dog news, of course. It's not only the largest business enterprise in the state and nearly biggest in the known universe, its major stockholders also own the University of Arkansas, the Little Rock School Board and assorted politicians.

  • Trump immigration protest at LR: Quick and fierce

    It was not even 24 hours ago that Sophia Said, director of the Interfaith Center; City Director Kathy Webb and others decided to organize a protest today of Donald Trump's executive order that has left people from Muslim countries languishing in airports or unable to come to the US at all — people with visas, green cards,a  post-doc graduate student en route to Harvard, Google employees abroad, families. I got the message today before noon; others didn't find out until it was going on. But however folks found out, they turned out in huge numbers, more than thousand men, women and children, on the grounds of the state Capitol to listen to speakers from all faiths and many countries.
