In a lofty address that at times resembled a campaign speech, the chief executive of Wal-Mart Stores, H. Lee Scott, said that “we live in a time when people are losing confidence in the ability of government to solve problems.” But Wal-Mart, he said, “does not wait for
someone else to solve problems.” Mr. Horowitz said Wal-Mart had room
to improve, however. Its next goal, he said, should be to stop selling the least
energy-efficient products, rather than simply introducing better models.
MANOHLA DARGIS of the NY Times writes: "Forget buckets of blood. Nothing says horror like one of those tubs of artificially buttered, nonorganic popcorn at the concession stand. That, at least, is one of the unappetizing lessons to draw from one of the scariest movies of the year, “Food, Inc.,” an informative, often infuriating activist documentary about the big business of feeding or, more to the political point, force-feeding, Americans all the junk that multinational corporate money can buy."
