Brothers and Sisters, my S. Campbell Wal-Mart is undergoing deconstruction. Gone is the big blue facade. We’re going brown. Interior and exterior. New flooring and new layout. Wider isles for wider people, perhaps? Maybe the new warm colors will soothe the crying babies.

Meanwhile: Wal-Mart Stores Inc. is mobilizing its store managers and department supervisors around the country to warn that if Democrats win power in November, they’ll likely change federal law to make it easier for workers to unionize companies.
