That's absurd. That's like getting in a plane crash because the pilots weren't properly trained and saying - well, I'm never flying those guys again!
I'm not advocating suing Walmart. But, if that's the situation, and they did know the product they're putting on the shelves is offensive to some people and they chose to not put a label on it, they are to blame.

That I might agree with, and I will listen to music with my child when he is old enough to want to listen to more than kids songs. But that doesn't change the advisory. If it's there, I don't want it in his hands. I have no problem with a "corporation" telling me if there is a swear word on the disc or not. I'd much rather they do it than me having to sit down and listen to an entire disc to make sure it's okay before I give it to my kid.
And Evenescense (sp?) isn't exactly Bob Dylan, so I'm less apt to consider swearing okay in that situation.
