Mighty WalMart Caves To The Shank Family

First off, I'd like to congratulate WalMart on doing the right thing. Secondly, the reason WalMart caved was that this decision to gain $417,000 to their profit margin brought so much negative backlash that they ultimately had to relent. Despite getting a few brownie points in my book for sparing the financial of future of this family that lost one son in Iraq and a has a mother that needs a lifetime of care, they only did it for PR purposes. If they wanted to be good citizens, they never would have filed such a heinous lawsuit.
