Oh boy.

Alabama city destroying ancient Indian mound for Sam's Club

City leaders in Oxford, Ala. have approved the destruction of a 1,500-year-old Native American ceremonial mound and are using the dirt as fill for a new Sam's Club, a retail warehouse store operated by Wal-Mart.

Alabama city destroying ancient Indian mound for Sam's Club

This is so heartbreaking. And a nauseating example of corporate disregard for anyone but themselves. I sort of hope they find remains just so they have to stop.

 I don't like this... no respect for national or cultural heritage.

If I'm ever dug up I hope it's for some scientific and important reason, not for another wallie world.

I don't understand the blatant disrespect though, would they be willing to dig up a currently used grave yard?  No.  Just because it's old and the people who used it may be long gone doesn't mean it's lost its significance or meaning.

These events could be adapted for a 2009 remake of [the 1980s American TV series] The Dukes Of Hazzard, with Boss Hogg on the side of Wal-Mart. Too bad this real-life story probably won't have a similarly happy ending, with Bo and Luke saving the day after a car chase.
