Paul Greenburg wrote an interesting column about Wal-Mart. The government tried to fine Wal-Mart for unsafe working conditions that led to the death of an employee. The store had a grand opening and the impatient mob broke down the doors and trampled the unfortunate man.
But Wal-Mart has spent a couple of million dollars fighting the $7000 fine and the feds don't like it. They finally picked on someone their own size. Read the column, it's fun.
