On The Bright Side: NPR Notes Wal-Mart's Efficient Post-Hurricane Help

NPR's All Things Considered tonight carried a story from reporter Frank Langfitt focusing on how Wal-Mart brought their efficient distribution system to bear in the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina, particularly in Kenner, Louisiana, where their supplies arrived before federal or Red Cross help. He did conclude by noting that Wal-Mart is videotaping their charity for reporters. But hey, why not? Wal-Mart has been quite a whipping boy for negative media coverage.The Free Market Project folks note a positive Washington Post story in the "Quoteworthy" box on their home page as well.
