"It depends on what your definition of 'wall' is. . . ."

Remember during those hearings back in fall, 2004, when Wal-Mart and Wal-Mart's sock puppets in the audience all stood up and told us how neighboring residents didn't need to worry about the effects of a 24-hour Wal-Mart supercenter, because there'd be a beautiful, decorative wall, covered with climbing vines, that would separate the residential area from the supercenter?  They lied.

I suppose I should no longer be surprised when Wal-Mart and their sock puppets pull this crap on us.  But their hypocrisy, their double-talk, and the true depths of their dishonesty continue to amaze me.

Because, now we are being told that this "wall" that those lying liars assured us was going to "shield" the residents from the supercenter is actually going to be (drum roll, please!) THE BACK OF THE SUPERCENTER!

I could have sworn I saw a Rosemead LIES/Wal-Mart paid-for mailer that pictured an artist's conception of this Supercenter.  And I could have sworn that the drawing presented an ACTUAL WALL running along Delta Street.  It was still ugly, of course.  But it was also still something creating a little bit more space and insulation from those 12,000 cars and trucks a day, and the visual blight that the Supercenter represents.  If anyone still has one of those flyers, would you please try to get it to me?  E-mail me at news@saveourcommunity.us
