Wal-Mart's Latest PR Blunder

In case you haven't heard, Wal-Mart recently was under fire for "approving a recent newspaper advertisement that equated a proposed Arizona zoning ordinance with Nazi book-burning." After offending everyone and their mothers, they've since apologized, but really, what were they thinking??? Visit Wake Up Wal-Mart to see the ad, and if you're curious, read about the actual book burning here.

Anyways, even if you could somehow ignore the incredibly offensive imagery, the caption is ridiculous, "Should we let government tell us what we can read?" No! Of course not! So why would you want to welcome a store that censors what you can read, listen to, or be prescribed?
