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.

    No cartoons on racism

    As you might imagine, the vast majority of the editorial cartoons available these days for publication through the syndicate which supplies cartoons to the Athens Banner-Herald/OnlineAthens are addressing the situation in Ferguson, Mo., where the fatal shooting of a black teen by a white police officer has touched off a number of demonstrations -- some peaceful, but many not at all peaceful, with tear gas fired by police officers and gunshots fired by some protester. read more
