Making Change at Walmart! Merry Christmas!

November 14, 2012

Will you shop at Walmart? Or will you complain to the editors at the Athens Banner and say that I should be banned because I am an extremist and posting this news story about Walmart, and you like shopping at Wal-Mart Stores, Inc., branded as Walmart? Or do you agree with the Walmart employees who are planning on going on strike? Oh, I know, I am posting way too much here about Walmart for someone and therefore I'm an extremist and this news story should not be considered. Ohhh...I guess some of y'all won't support a worker then.

"Black Friday's shopping bonanza brings people out to line up in front of stores for hours before it begins. It has trampled people, but not profits for companies that reap a large chunk of their annual sales on the day after Thanksgiving...Walmart workers are gearing up for a walkout on Black Friday.

    Blog: Can we please fix the Oscars?

    Summary:  Fun facts: The first-ever Oscar ceremony, held in 1929, ran a brisk 15 minutes. By contrast, the longest was in 2002, clocking in at a monstrous 4 hours and change. As usual, there are things I loved about it and things I didn't. Rather than be snarky or complain, I'll offer a few suggestions on how the organizers might bring the show into the 21st century.

An officer reported he was driving the woman and infant to another home in Athens. read more
