retail news in context, analysis with attitude

ABC News is reporting this morning that two Kansas Walmart stores, in Leavenworth and Lawrence, had to be evacuated after bomb threats.

Police searched for explosive devices but found nothing.

This is not an isolated case. Indeed, published reports say that at least seven different Walmart stores in Missouri had to be evacuated last week because of bomb threats,

And, according to various stories, two Walmarts in Tulsa, Oklahoma, had to be evacuated because of a bomb threat last June, and two Georgia Walmart stores got a similar threat that caused evacuations during June.
KC's View:
Almost hate to say it out loud, but it always has seemed to me that if you want to go after America, you go after institutions like Walmart. Maybe, since nothing has actually happened, these are just weirdly coincidental events. But I don't really believe in coincidence.

Walmart has to be getting nervous that there is something else going on here.
