FANATICS FLINGING FACE FOAM…

I seriously hope that Wal-Mart doesn't cave to the fanatics attacking it for stocking Middle Eastern foods in a portion of one aisle the way it did to the christianists over an arrangement with the National Gay And Lesbian Chamber Of Commerce. I, and most people, applauded Wal-Mart for its community friendly approach to bi-lingual signage for Hispanic shoppers. And the chain caters to other ethnic groups as well. All of that is good. But last week I noted how the bigots were creeping out of the dark corners to attack Wal-Mart for its stocking of Middle Eastern food and hiring Arabic speaking employees in Dearborn, Michigan. I described the earlier attack as a creeping fungus. It looks like this second fungus is spreading as well. If I lived in Dearborn, I'd go to that Wal-Mart and buy as much of the Middle Eastern food (as a Jew I enjoy much of the same food) as I could. Would you? Jeff Hess: Have Coffee Will Write.

    I would too. Like I said when I first posted the Newsweek story on this, that Wal-Mart sounded much better than all the other ones I’ve ever seen.

    Shalom Jonathan,

    Since I’m only about three hours away from Dearborn, I’m considering a field trip.

    Do you suppose I could get the Wal-Mart manager to allow me to video tape inside the store?

    B’shalom,

    I’d start by asking our good friends at Edelman. Or perhaps by my writing this, they’ll find you.

    Hmmm… Could be.

    B’shalom,
