08/20/02  I want my Wal-Mart

Wal-Mart will be making a presentation at our crime watch on Wednesday at Oak Lawn Library at noon, 8/20/02.

I had a long, bitter argument with Veletta some time back, and she seems violently opposed to our getting more shopping opportunities. 

This crime going up thing is absolute nonsense. What crime? The store getting stuck up?? 

If there is mugging in the parking lot, then they will have to provide security or there won't be any customers.

When I worked the Early Voting Ballot Board, the judge is from the NorthPark/Love Field neighborhood, and several of her clerks just so happen to also be from there, too. We had unanimity of thought that people 1) want a place to shop and 2) want a place to work.

It appears that only the people in Greenway Park and Highland Park think that Wal-Mart ought to be way out in the suburbs and you and I should saddle up our SUV's and ride 'em out. 

I, however, think this store would put pressure on Simon David and other supermarkets to be highly competitive.  I don't propose to add to the traffic, because I will be going out there on the bus!

  Ward politics is the Devil's key to the soul of the city council.  It is how some council members got themselves in trouble in the past.  It is the bait that will get others in trouble in the future. 4/6/8
