APPARENTLY THE ATTACK DOCUMENTARY DIDN’T WORK — or maybe the counter-documentary did. . . . Anyway, there’s this news about Wal-Mart:

The world’s largest retailer said Saturday that it expects to post a solid 4.3 percent gain in same-store sales for November, helped by better-than expected sales during the post-Thanksgiving day shopping rush. That’s at the midpoint of its growth forecast of 3 to 5 percent. The sales results cover the four-week period through Friday.

Sales seem to be good in general. That’s good economic news, I guess.
