You buy from wal-mart, you get what you pay for.  (I bought a battery for my
tractor from sam's last summer.  Went to put it in, and saw the date
sticker: june 2003.  Yeah, not rotating stock is one way to keep costs
down!.  )  A battery from the autoparts place was 37 cents more, and only a
month old.
