Glass, age 60, seemed to be a good choice for CEO when Sam Walton, at 69, tapped him to take over in 1988. Investors have knocked down Wal-Mart's market value by $7.7 billion since the day Sam died. Sam built it from nothing to $59.3 billion. In the past year, key executives, particularly S...
  • Ad For X Ray Glasses

  • Aromas Of The Wine
    343 words

    I use a one-liter plastic canteen with flat sides and a wide mouth. The cap, being slightly tapered, fits snugly inside a tall drinking glass.

The luminescent moon gave an undiluted vision from the tinted glass.
