Give Me Convenience or Give Me ...

[Wal-Merica] You've heard the radio ads pushing the vote to approve a Wal-Mart Supercenter in Heber City: "Vote for convenience." "It'll be great for the community." "I'm tired of driving so far away to do my shopping!"

Yeah. Here's the thing: You moved to Heber! On purpose! What the hell are you bitching about?

Then again, those probably aren't real people in the ads; they're more likely actors voicing the party line from the Boyer Company, the developers behind such folksy, distinctive projects as The Commons and The Gateway.
But hey, if the town votes for it, cool. The sooner every acre of the country looks the same, the better--and more convenient, of course. (Bill Frost)

  1. Oh, I should have KNOWN the Boyer Co. was behind that cheesy ad! They say at the end it's sponsored by "People for Progress" or some such shit.

    Goodbye bucolic little Heber City. Hello Red Lobster.
