Wants more on Wal-Mart

Unedited story idea from a reader:

hello.  my name is barbara mitchell and i think it would be interesting to find out what the impact would be to our economy if (when -- ed.) a wal-mart opens in austin.  i feel our community is looking at it purely as consumers.  i have read a few different articles and they all indicate wal-mart has a drastic affect on the decline of small businesses in the communities they enter.  i don't think our community realizes the overall effect that will have on each member.  just an idea for a story line many people in town would be interested in.  thanks for your time.
