In the Belly of the Beast

I have arrived at the center of the Wal-Mart Universe: Bentonville, Arkansas. The Wal-Mart Vistor's Center is here, located in the store where Sam started it all. My hotel is even on Walton Blvd.

The weather here is much like the infernal region the PARDners must imagine this place to be. It was 94 degrees today, an all-time record for April in Arkansas. It's supposed to be a little cooler tomorrow (88). Quite a shock for me after yesterday's snow in Pullman.

I'll be reporting all day tomorrow as the media conference gets underway.
