Reader: Boulder Walmart critics outnumbered by people who'd like to shop there

Our post about a new Walmart in Boulder expected to open this fall despite strong objections from locals concerned about the company's business practices and wage scale revved up dialogue aplenty. Here's a post from a reader who believes that those excited by the prospect represent far more people than do anti-Walmart protesters.

150 protesters vs. the inevitable 150,000 shoppers. Must we continue to let the loudest mouths of us make up all the rules and not the majority like it should be? A shopper vs. picketer octagon is clearly the only way to settle this dispute. It'll be like a grown-up version of a school yard brawl.
