While reading the Looking Back page Sunday, I was reminded of the old Kentucky State Hospital for the insane. I always wondered where those people went when it closed, and where those kind of people are today. Well, I have discovered that I can find them every day now driving through the Walmart parking lot. They drive the wrong direction in the marked traffic lanes. They drive criss-cross the parking places and not in the marked traffic lanes, and they park in the fire lane.
While on the subject of Walmart, if anyone did not notice how they started raising prices when Kmart closed, they were not paying attention to their shopping. One item I purchased often went up 94 percent. They play up the “Roll Back” items while quietly raising prices on almost everything else in the store. Sam Walton started the company giving his customers a good value for every dollar they spent in his stores, not just on some of the dollars.
