Re Sept. 30 Mande Wilkes column, “4 reasons why voting is for sucker”
The column included the line, “And just like the real Wal-Mart, the Wal-Marts of Washington offer poor quality and lack ethic.”
To insert a comment like the above in what otherwise appears to be a tongue-in-cheek commentary on our current political climate seems to be a gratuitous and pointless attack that has nothing to do with the subject of the essay. I find it offensive and am surprised that the editorial staff of The Sun News would approve its inclusion on the op-ed page.
I am an occasional Wal-Mart shopper, not an employee or stockholder. It seems to me that the store sells well-known national brand merchandise at fair prices. I can’t comment on its ethic, but since Ms. Wilkes seems to be knowledgeable on the subject, perhaps she should elaborate.
