Wal-Mart: Some associates are more equal than others?

Posted By on Thu, Jun 26, 2008 at 9:51 AM

Ah - according to the Business section in the Arkansas Democrat-Gazette, Wal-Mart is going to move their annual January meeting (for store managers, district managers, and a host of other company officials) away from Kansas City after 12 years.

The reason? Not enough hotel rooms.

What? They can’t just shove them into dormitories like do the happy associates who come for the shareholders meeting in Fayetteville every year?

Poor babies.

Boy, is this guy in for a world of trouble

“Duck Hunter shoots Angel” read the caption on the scandal sheet in the check-out line at Harps yesterday. Yes, I know it’s the title of a play by Mitch Albom, but I somehow don’t think that’s what they were referring to.

It’s good to know that somebody is keeping up the journalistic standards maintained by the Weekly World News and KFSM (and their occasional Big Foot quests)  - but you gotta wonder about the the state of this guy’s soul, now that he has managed to wing an emissary of God Almighty?

*****

On the other hand . . .

What hell is an Angel doing, letting itself get shot?

Stupid Angel.

    Gospel and R&B singer and civil rights activist Mavis Staples, who has been inspiring fans with gospel-inflected freedom songs like "I'll Take You There" and "March Up Freedom's Highway" and the poignant "Oh What a Feeling" will come to Little Rock for the commemoration of the 60th anniversary of the desegregation of Central High.
  • Klan's president

    Everything that Donald Trump does — make that everything that he says — is calculated to thrill his lustiest disciples. But he is discovering that what was brilliant for a politician is a miscalculation for a president, because it deepens the chasm between him and most Americans.
  • On Charlottesville

    Watching the Charlottesville spectacle from halfway across the country, I confess that my first instinct was to raillery. Vanilla ISIS, somebody called this mob of would-be Nazis. A parade of love-deprived nerds marching bravely out of their parents' basements carrying tiki torches from Home Depot.
