A video clip of one of my Wal-Mart jokes was just added to a blog called The Beauty in Wal-Mart.
The site describes itself as follows:
The Beauty In Wal-Mart was created to show how amazing everyone is, by providing an outlet for the good and bad feelings about Wal-Mart. Just look at how creative and powerful the posts have been so far, and you'll see what we're after.
Why Wal-Mart? Because it's at the top of the mountain. Just about everyone is affected by Wal-Mart, and it's time we found out who they are—who we all are—so we can do away with the impersonal nature of so many things in our world.
I like that they've put this together. I generally dislike Wal-Mart for its healthcare practices, anti-union thuggery, destruction of local economies and promotion of unsustainable consumer culture. If our society is racing toward armageddon, then Wal-Mart is our flux capacitor, but there are some interesting perspectives on the positive side as well. Many of the positive stories on that site focus on how affordable Wal-Mart is and how people barely getting by have no other options for essential services like prescription drugs.
