Now, Go Left: The Whole Foods "Buycott"
Don't know how we missed word of the Whole Foods "buycott," which kicked off Tuesday night in St. Louis and at the Preston Forest location. Read about it in this morning's Los Angeles Times, where author Meghan Daum brings word of the National Tea Party's response to the response to Whole Foods co-founder John Mackey's Wall Street Journal op-ed from August in wrote that we need better health, not better health care. The Tea Party has asked its peoples to shop at Whole Foods for a whole week -- because that'll show those "left wing propagandists" who've gone to, um, Central Market, maybe? If nothing else, they need to stock up on snacks for when the kids are home from school on Tuesday.
