I was going to write a long rant about how stupendously stupid, reactionary, unthinking, troglodytic (is that a word?), and embarrassingly moronic all of those granola eaters are who are incensed that the CEO of Whole Foods had the temerity to express an opinion on a topic about which he is quite knowledgeable. But then Radley Balko beat me to it, with two excellent posts that skewer these fools far better than I could. Read the first one here, and the second one here.
I rarely shop at Whole Foods anymore because there is a new Fairway just a few minutes farther away that has equal quality and far better selection, not to mention better prices and great American shrimp. But I might drop in there more frequently just to show solidarity with John Mackey and a lovely part of the U.S. Constitution called the First Amendment.
