america the beautiful
i spent many a year criss-crossing this great land of ours, and one of the most ubiquitous roadside attractions is walmart. it's not an exaggeration to say that walmart has gutted small town life in the united states ; as walmart was pleased to announce in 2010, 'no one will beat us on price' -no mom and pop shop can. even more important than voting is where and how you spend your money, so take a stand, albeit a small one, for common decency... don't shop at walmart.
the original painting was a gift from my beautiful wife, and is another paint-by-numbers masterpiece, complete with goodwill pricetags on the back. she sure knows the way to a man's heart..
