August 13, 2012


We attended a public meeting last night dealing with the prospect of opening a new Wal-Mart in our tiny little hamlet.  Excepting the obvious, (which is we don’t want the damn thing), there are serious concerns about the environment, traffic, quality of life, etc.  The village runs along a two lane road and for as long as we have been up here (since 96); this road has become increasingly congested.  No traffic study needed.

Needless to say, they did do a traffic study and came to the conclusion that traffic levels were actually down.  One of the reasons they cited for this was the high rate of unemployment in the area.  Huh?  Are they suggesting that none of these good folks will ever work again?  Or drive to interviews, or to the store.  I’m waiting to hear at the next meeting that they have been taking statistics from local funeral homes.  Only makes sense with this line of logic.
