Oh, Good

From BusinessWeek:

Wal-Mart Stores Inc. has been recruiting former military and government intelligence officers for a branch of its global security office aimed at identifying threats to the world's largest retailer, including from "suspect individuals and groups."
Instead of trying to ferret out whistleblowers, critics, and unionizers, why don't they just, you know, stop acting like jerks? People would complain less about the company if it stopped buying too-cheap stuff from China, paying its employees too little, harassing people interested in unionizing, and generally acting like a robber barony.
