The fact is, people who don't like Wal-Mart find a lot of reasons not to like it. And I get tired of people trying to bad-mouth a business that doesn't purport to be anything but a high-volume, low-price retailer with good workers and clean stores.

That's the old David-n-Goliath problem. Wal-Mart is a target (no pun intended!) simply because it is so large and ubiquitous. I am sure that Woolworth used to be treated similarly 100 years or so ago. As long as it is #1, it will be held responsible for all evils that have ever happened in America. Starting with Columbus's arrival, who, of course, would have shopped at Wal-mart if he ever made it to Bentonville :)
