This week what I did was what I did not do: shop at Walmart. That wasn’t much of a change, as I don’t shop at Walmart anyway. But we usually do our grocery shopping at Sam’s Club, which is owned by the same company, and we declined to shop there this weekend as well. I also contributed to the Corporate Action Network, Fred Whispered with relatives and neighbors in support of Walmart workers, and took extra time to show my appreciation for the retail workers I met while grocery shopping. And although it was online, I also filled out the OFA survey asking for our input on how to put the data, skills, and organization of the Obama campaign to best use over the coming months and years.
