Thinking About Quality of Life

“You can’t buy small town quality of life at a Wal-Mart…
They don’t sell it.  But once they steal it from you, you can’t get it back at any price.”

Al Norman
Founder, Sprawl-Busters

“I remember that like it was yesterday…To hell with it, Wal-Mart will just buy the damn town.  We’ll shut them down.  And we used to drive through towns going, ‘six months, three months, six months’ is when we’d be closing them.”
