Politics from the Palouse to Puget Sound

Mission Accomplished

Over lunch a little while ago, I was introduced to Wal-Mart President and CEO Lee Scott. I told him we really wanted a Wal-Mart Supercenter in Pullman. He said they really wanted to build one.

I have secretly fantasized for months about traveling to Bentonville, going right to the top management, and telling them to ignore all the detractors in Pullman. I never dreamed I would actually get the chance.

You didn't happen to tell him that I wanted one in Moscow too, did you?

Of course not. Keeping all that great tax revenue to yourself!

Thanks Tom for plugging Pullman and yes indeed most merchants and residents welcome Wal-mart to Pullman.
Invite Lee to come on down and see for himself. We'll take him on a tour of the Palouse.
