Walmart in the Wilderness 0

Walmart wants to build one of its Sucky Centers adjacent to the Wilderness Battlefield, where Grant and Lee met on the battlefield for the first time.

In Wally World, the only sacred things are green pieces of paper with presidents’ faces on them.

The local rag has the right take:

As the 150th anniversary of the Civil War approaches, many Americans will turn their eyes to landmarks like the Wilderness. And many won’t look kindly upon the prospect of a Wal-Mart so close to the park.

Development has crept near the park in recent years, but nothing is on the scale of Wal-Mart’s plans. It’s in the wrong place, . . . .

There are reasons I avoid Walmart.
