Biz: We really don’t lean either way on the Whole Foods debate

  • A lot of people have been paying a premium for the Whole Foods brand for years. A lot of people are sad to look at this corporation and see that it is just like any other, if not worse.
  • “Boycott Whole Foods” group founder Mark Rosenthal • Discussing the brand that set off a healthy round of Internet rage over the last week and a half. Since it launched, the group has gotten thousands of granola-eating hippie types in its grasp, angry that John Mackey, the guy who founded the company which they rely on for organic food, is actually a libertarian who doesn’t support universal health care. Personally, we feel like, while both sides have a point and Mackey should’ve kept his mouth shut, this debate is just getting more play now because the debate over universal health care has gotten so out of hand. Sigh. • source

Biz, U.S.: Bernard Madoff didn’t just screw over the super-wealthy

  • We don’t have any cash reserves now. And we still owe money on our houses.
  • Ian Thiermann • A 90-year-old California man who lost his $750,000 life savings in Madoff’s scheme and now works in a grocery store to make ends meet. Yeah, that’s right, he’s 90 and works in a grocery store. • source
