My blog contains a large number of posts. A few are included in various other publications, or as attached stories and chronicles in my emails; many more are found on loose leaves, while some are written carelessly in margins and blank spaces of my notebooks. Of the last sort most are nonsense, now often unintelligible even when legible, or half-remembered fragments. Enjoy responsibly.

Another Day, Another Wal-Mart Lawsuit

So today I was reading the news and one of the leading headlines reads, “Women Sue Wal-Mart Over Contraception”. The article goes on to explain how these women are “accusing the retail giant of violating a state regulation by failing to stock emergency contraception pills in its pharmacies”. Which got me to thinking: at some point you would think that all of news programs showing the slave labor in China, the massive lawsuits and eventual legal victories, the destroyed small communities and serious damage to the American economy should hurt this company. It's hard to believe that they aren't even attempting to be more proactive about NOT appearing so damn evil. It’s like they want to collapse from their own weight and disconnect from their core customer.
