My friend, Rick Boyne, asked the Question Are we too dependent on Walmart?

That’s an important Question from the Emergency Management perspective but not for the reason he opines.

Americans have become attuned to Just In Time everything. When Walmart can’t deliver goods for three days, what are YOU going to do for the three days you wait for Walmart trucks … and I mean trucks … to arrive?

You can’t even GET to Walmart so is the only thing left to order it online and have it shipped?

If you can’t go, there’s no buying. If Walmart can’t deliver, there’s no buying.
