Holding on the Bible letter
J. P. Holding is organizing an effort to fight the Wal-Mart Bible Letter. Holding says, "Of course Wal-Mart isn't likely to make policy decisions based on either of these letters, but if nothing else, it sure will make Mr. Brain mad, won't it?" I don't know what the originator of the letter thinks of Holding's campaign, but I'm thrilled. As Holding says, it's unlikely to affect Wal-Mart policy. I think most people who signed the letter aren't hoping for a change, or if they are, they're hoping to get Jon Stewart back on the shelves. Much of what this letter stands to accomplish is raising awareness of Biblical attrocities, that's why I'm glad Holding is getting involved: more publicity. In a comment thread somewhere, a poster expressed a hope that something like this would happen. Go Holding!
