Interesting. I went back and read the posts that started this and I was really struck by some of the responses there. I particularly mean the self-righteous tone about stupid people willing to sell our history blah blah blah. There also seems to be mixed in with it an anti-Walmart tone in general, which should be carefully hidden in those discussions-- even if it exists.

I tend to believe that a smart compromise should have been possible. The one you suggested, for instance. I also believe that the local people would have accepted a compromise if it respected their economic needs.
