Of course nobody wants a hazardous waste incinerator or high-level nuclear waste dump in their backyard. How about a Wal-Mart?

Another Alphabet Lesson from Apple?
Could the "A" in Apple and AOL come before the "M" in Microsoft? Apple and America Online are collaborating on an instant messaging service, extending this service to Macintosh users.

The Wise Fail to Comprehend Berkshire Hathaway
Columnist Eric Tyson refers to Berkshire Hathaway as a mutual fund, and Fools discuss his lack of understanding of the company's insurance businesses. He also forgets Berkshire's other wholly owned subsidiaries.

Amazon.com vs. Paying for Service
Amazon offers a lot that traditional booksellers don't. However, it lacks the personal touch. Is it worth the difference in price and time?

Microsoft: Remember the Bell Telephone Company?
