Hummer Bummer

As seen in my local Whole Foods. That can’t be good for business.

With the premise that the Hummer in its several forms is just about the least practical transportation vehicle with few if any redeeming features beyond the burnishing of badly sagging/damaged egos and fattening 'bottom lines', Whole Foods is right on the mark with their T-shirt.

But then something should be said about the fraud that is the 'organic movement', the basis for Whole Foods and many others. Flawed thinking/reasoning is a part of this, a lack of definitions & regulations are factors. What makes it work is the gullibility of so many poorly informed often college educated high wage earners. Thus the proximity of the WF stores to college campuses. The more politically liberal the latter, the better the WF sales. Yet curiously enough, the concentration of Hummers parked out front of Whole Foods is far greater than at a Krogers or Safeway. P.T. Barnham rides again...
