Wal-Mart is the New Cancun

As a social experiment, a writing student at Drake decided to spend his spring break at Wal-Mart. He stayed there for three days before giving it up. Regardless, this article makes for some pretty good reading. They say there's a time and place for everything... and that's college.

The spokesman for Wal-Mart made the comment that "we're a retailer, not a hotel." Maybe Mr. Bartels just gave Wal-Mart a new market to enter!
