To bad the wind mill on top of his 9th street building doesnt actually produce electricity. How about we require every new big box store have wind turbines and solar panels on their massive buildings instead of have priority of our electricity and gas. In the event of a black out Wal-mart gets electricity prior to public residents. That will be the only time I go to wal-mart.

I would rather sit in the dark. Screw Wal-Mart. Each Super Wal-Mart requires at least 1 MW of electricity. I bet Wal-Mart alone requires 100 MW of electricity in the Kansas City Metropolitan area.
