    Wal-Mart ready to fight - By MARK ALBRIGHT, St. Petersburg Times, FL
    Folks who think Wal-Mart's battle to silence its organized critics will end soon should think again. The CEO of the world's biggest retailer says he ignored a campaign organized by two service workers unions too long.

    'We ceded too much ground letting them tell a story about us that is not factual,' said Lee Scott, president and chief executive of Wal-Mart Stores Inc. 'Going forward (fighting back) is going to be my life. Any time two union groups spend $25-million to take us down, I have to be out there.'
