Don’t look so surprised – Wal-Mart is in fact going into communities where classic economic redevelopment has failed, or worse yet, has never even been attempted.

Wal-Mart gets lots of criticism for lots of things, and as an employer that brings together a population greater in size than many American cities, this is no surprise.  When was the last time a city of this size (1 million plus people) didn’t receive criticism? 

My opinion of Wal-Mart is ever-changing; stories like this one are why.
