The End of the World is Nigh

Either I've gone insane or the world is about to end:

Executives from Wal-Mart and three other major U.S. employers on Wednesday joined hands with union leaders in setting a goal of providing 'quality, affordable' health care for millions of workers by 2012.

An interesting coalition since Wal-Mart isn't exactly winning awards for its own health coverage. Nevertheless, perhaps this will get the ball rolling.

Various unions have been picketing Walmart over this. Since employees of Walmart are given federal applications for welfare and other social programs, the government might cut them a special deal (we're already paying for them).
