Dancing with what brung 'em

Posted By on Wed, Sep 12, 2007 at 2:43 PM

Wal-Mart rolled out a new slogan today -- "Save Money. Live Better."  It's all about savings. Worked before. Upscaling hasn't. Company release here.

Personal commentary: I'd rather shop in Target. Wider aisles. Less jumbled. More attractive. More geared to my (admittedly limited) tastes in consumer goods. But I don't much like driving miles to Target, either, or fighting a traffic-clogged, giant parking lot of any brand, particularly to find that the item I'm seeking isn't in stock. I'll pay more for convenience and speed and, where needed, knowledgeable sales people. But I'm not a typical shopper. I rarely shop, except for groceries, and most of my other shopping is done on-line.

  • 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.
