Let people of Ceres decide about Wal-Mart

In response to "We can do better than Wal-Mart" (Sept. 6, Letters): Let the battle begin! It looks like we're going to have another fun-filled episode of "Keep Wal-Mart Out" in Ceres. To spew the vitriolic allegations about Wal-Mart, which is right out of the "playbook" on the Internet, clearly illustrates a lack of independent thinking about our economy's free enterprise system.

Let the people decide. Wal-Mart is no different than any other business. If they don't have customers, they will close the doors.

Responding to the allegations against Wal-Mart would be fruitless. The allegations are similar in every argument against nonunion operations.
