Several readers have suggested that I should have had specific information on how to complain to Wal-Mart about its banning of Maurice Bessinger's BBQ sauce because he is pro-Confederate.
Here's Jef Allen's story, to remind you of the outrage:
Steve Yates had an earlier, related story on the great BBQ magnate:
Phone Wal-Mart at 1-800-925-6278. Join the groundswell of opposition, which includes an Austrian economist in Brazil!
You can also go to the customer websites: www.wal-mart.com or www.samsclub.com. but it's not easy to send email through them. Use this address: [email protected]. There's also the corporate site at www.walmartstores.com.
And speaking of webpages, you can order the banned sauce directly from:
