KANSAS CITY BOX STORE PUSH BACK!!! TAKE A LOOK AT THE NEW PETITION AGAINST THE WALDO WAL-MART!!!
Kansas City residents in the working-class Waldo neighborhood continue their fight against discount prices at the expense of Chinese toddlers. Sure, their efforts are mostly inspired by concerns about increased traffic and new visitors to their enclave but they've managed to engage in a nice bit of grassroots activist nevertheless.
To wit . . .

And now take a look at the revised missive to change hearts and mind about the neighborhood impact of a box store giant . . .
Change.org Petition - Kansas City Public School Board: Only a non-commercial use should be considered for the Bingham Property
Now this is a big step because Waldo neighbors have already won big concessions from the box store giant.
Still . . .
WALDO NEIGHBORS ARE GOING IN FOR THE KILL AGAINST A PROPOSED WAL-MART IN THEIR NEIGHBORHOOD AND IT LOOKS LIKE THEY JUST MIGHT BE ON THE CUSP OF VICTORY!!!
Kansas City Insiders report that a couple members of the Council are in support of keeping the school and even attempting to make it an educational institution once again . . . The overwhelming neighborhood sentiment is against the Wal-Mart and most local politicos seem to be scared to step-in on behalf of the discount giant.
And so, small stores and angry neighbors still rally for support and hope they can achieve a David vs. Goliath victory.
