satchelsofgold asks: Hey guys, question about your post re: the Supreme Court's decision on the Wal-Mart case. Your headline suggests it was a unanimous ruling, but all the stories I have seen and heard indicate it was a split decision along the usual ideological lines. Would you consider correcting this or explaining your numbers? 9-0 makes it sound a lot less controversial than it is. Thanks!
» SFB says: Well, every article we’ve read notes that it was unanimous that the case couldn’t continue as is. However, there was a separate ruling that went into more specifics about whether such a case could go forth in any circumstance. And that was 5-4. That part of the case had also not broken when we published our piece (which was based on a three-paragraph story literally minutes after the decision was published) yesterday. Fact of matter, though, is that the main decision was unanimous and our article was correct. — Ernie @ SFB
Want some crap from Wal-Mart? Well, based on what it is, you might be able to get it shipped for free over the holidays. This is a big change that could potentially give the retailer a huge leg-up on its competitors. The deal, which runs through December 20, includes giant flat-screen TVs, computers and other electronics. However, it doesn’t include furniture, toys, home appliances, some video games, baby crap (go to Diapers.com), jewelry, iPhones or iPads … wait. No iPhones or iPads? Not interested. Screw you, Wal-Mart. source
