Thank God Wal-Mart is building a Supercenter in Moscow. The Moscow anti-Wal-Mart letters to the editor are still fresh and somewhat funny. The PARD letters have gotten defensive, shrill and frankly monotonous. How many letters can Chris Lupke, Cynthia Hosick and Janet Damm write anyway?
The letter from Bill Bonte in today's Moscow-Pullman Daily News is a scream! The letter itelf is typical hyperbolic liberal rubbish. But I love the references to "a dark shadow has fallen over our small Idaho town" and "corporate vampires". Bill is obviously also a baby boomer like myself and a fan of the campy Sixties British soap opera "Dark Shadows" that featured vampire Barnabas Collins.
"Dark Shadows" was recently released on DVD. Perhaps Bill can slip into Wal-Mart and pick up a copy.
