How do you justify calling Wal-Mart and Kmart (about to disapear in Canada after being taken over by canadian Hudson Bay co.) evil? I guess the employees at the Wal Mart in Windsor that voted overwelmingly against unionization didn't think they were being treated that badly. Maybe you could do a little travelling to some foreign countries to see what really qualifies for the poor treatment of employees. The pay of these companies puts even their lowest paid employees in the top few percantage points of the world's population for income.

Yes, the music sections of department stores is often a mess. Thats the beauty of the capitalist system - if you don't like it your free to shop somewhere else. There will always be someone searching for areas to exploit weakness in competitors. Around here, the cheapest place to buy popular cds (if you don't have a costco membership and the arn't available from record clubs) is Wal Mart. Whats so evil about offering customers low prices? If someone wants to find some more obscure titles, they can always shop elsewhere, and pay more. How is this evil?

To any Canada bashers lurk(or)ing out there, Canada is about to announce it has become the first country in the G7 to have a balanced budget. Now no one mention hockey in the Olympics and spoil our gloating.
