Barbara Hurst's letter in the Friday Exchange was yet another testimony to the wrong-headedness of building a liquefied natural gas facility anywhere near our precious Columbia River ("Inappropriate name," The Daily Astorian, Feb. 20).
I do take exception, however, to her comment, "I have never understood why the Warrenton commissioners would put a 'no Wal-Mart' clause in the new Costco development." Whatever is behind the commissioners' reasoning, I applaud this restriction.
There must be some truth to the countless accusations of wrong-doing on Wal-Mart's part, from mistreating their employees and not permitting them to unionize, to unscrupulous dealings in general. Even if only one-tenth of the accusations are true, that is enough to have made me resolve never to shop at a Wal-Mart.
