Walmart is closing all its stores worldwide except for four “life boat” stores. One is in San Francisco.

This is what I dreamed last night, sometime after the thunderstorm. In season, it rains hard here. Thus, I suppose, the lifeboats.

I told my kids at the breakfast table. Wal Mart is closing.

That’s nice, said one. Who cares? said another. Pass the milk, said a third.

This is life in Uganda. Where it rains hard. And we have Christmas without Walmart.
