This is one great editorial, taking issue with a Loyola University and University of Illinois at Chicago study claiming that Chicago's first and only WalMart on the West Side has been an economic bummer for the community.
The folks who don't want any more Wal-Marts in Chicago like to paint the superstore as the root of all evil.
Recently, they've latched on to a new study of Chicago's first Wal-Mart, in Austin, as further evidence of the unique kind of pain Wal-Mart inflicts on Americans.
There's just one problem.
The study's anti-Wal-Mart conclusions don't add up.
It gets better after that.
