So long, Whole Foods

Gee, and all this time I thought the role of CEOs was to earn ridiculously high salaries and cut corners to make the stockholders happy. Turns out they’ve also got political leanings and are none too shy in sharing said views with their customers.

So from someone who actually works for a living, here’s a fond goodbye to Whole Foods. I’ll miss your fields of salad toppings, your endless olive selection and your pizza bar—truly things of beauty, even if they aren’t guaranteed to make you any healthier than the guy eating at, say, Evo’s, Panera or Settebello, three places that, to my knowledge, haven’t yet told me how to feel about Obama’s health-care plan.

Most of all, I’ll miss the halcyon days of wandering through your aisles, safe in the knowledge that the only thing you were trying to shove down my throat was yummy hummus.
