Kudos to Olbermann
If you have been following his show, you know he has waged a week-long campaign against Walmart for its treatment of an ex-employee who's been on the receiving end of some serious personal tragedy. I won't go over details here but worth passing along that CNN reports Walmart has relented. I love stories like this, not just because it's the rare example of the greedy corporation brought to account, but because it puts the lie to their primary argument here: our hands are tied. The policy simply won't allow any flexibility. I guess that's just not true.

But even beyond that, I'm sure that Walmart was right. That probably *is* the policy everyone deals with. So now they've made an exception and hopefully opened themselves up to challenge from many others.
