Predictably, the Guardian excerpt includes content from someone pointing out "the irony" of the newspaper "lifting" content from [livejournal.com profile] illadore for the article.

Alabama city to destroy Indian mound for retail store

That's right, folks. They're going to destroy a place of archaelogical/anthropological/spiritual importance...to build a Sam's Club.

ETA: There's a protest!

AUGUST 30TH
TWO PM TO FIVE PM (2-5 PM)
at the STONE MOUND behind KOHL'S ON OXFORD EXCHANGE in Oxford, Alabama

(Many thanks to the awesome [livejournal.com profile] gregoria44 for the protest reminder!)
