Spying on the locals
Tonight I was at a local town meeting that was held to stop Wal-Mart from building a super center in their town. I felt like such a spy. All the people at the meeting were adamantly against Wal-Mart coming to their town. There was about 35 people, all over the age of 40. Jon and I stuck out like sore thumbs because we are under 25 and dressed nice. They knew we were with the "monster" big box (that is what they referred to Wal-Mart as) but no one asked. I kind of felt like James Bond (the girl version), well actually it was a little scary. Like they say in Mafia movies, know your closest exit and I did.
