Even in a little town like mine, the Wake Up Wal-Mart bozos are posting flyers. Unlike most bigger cities, however, there is not much in the way of alternatives to Wal-Mart (even if I wanted to follow). We have a K-mart and a brand new Home Depot; there is no Target, no Fred Mayer, no department stores (the nearest mall is 30 miles away). Of course, the people protesting Wal-Mart are probably well-off liberals who can afford to travel off the island; the rest of us (including the large military population) are happy that Wal-Mart is here. This area has a lot of not terribly wealthy people who appreciate the low prices and selection that Wal-Mart offers, and those who don't like Wal-Mart are free to shop elsewhere.
