News flash: Wal-Mart does the right thing!

Well, well, well. All the outrage worked. Keith Olbermann's taunting worked. Take a look:

(CNN) -- A former Wal-Mart employee who suffered severe brain damage in a traffic accident won't have to pay back the company for the cost of her medical care, Wal-Mart told the family Tuesday.

"Occasionally, others help us step back and look at a situation in a different way. This is one of those times," Wal-Mart Executive Vice President Pat Curran said in a letter. "We have all been moved by Ms. Shank's extraordinary situation."

This ought to be empowering to people. Enough people protesting can get even a giant like Wal-Mart to change its mind.
