Cartoon #259: “Pflugerville Wal-Mart”

Mayor Cat Callen and other muckety-mucks broke ground last Thursday for the Pflugerville, Texas version of Wal-Mart.

In this local cartoon, we revisit the oft repeated story of the small town in financial trouble, courted by the latter-day robber barons of Wal-Mart.

Pflugerville’s lawmakers are certain, however, that their town will not meet the fate of so many others left high and dry — and back in financial trouble — when Wal-Mart decided it no longer needed them, left an abandoned building too large to sell at a profit, and unemployed residents.
