From a Boston Herald story on Boston Mayor Thomas Menino, who is trying to extract concessions from Walmart before allowing it in his city, or else trying to keep it out altogether. "Wal-Mart makes their money and runs to the Midwest and deposits it in the bank. I want the money to stay in our neighborhoods and employ neighborhood people," he said.
I always thought Arkansas was the South, not the Midwest. But I guess it depends on how you look at it.
