Why it's OK to steal from Central Market and Whole Foods

" We throw away an obscene amount of food every day" says the adamantly unnamed employeee at Central Market. " They watch us like hawks when we dispose of food and it is a very regimented process." Despite their friendly facades of 'organic foods' , earth conciousness, and vegetarian friendly items, grocers like Whole Foods and Central Market make a large part of their revenue by serving prepared foods in a deli style atmosphere.

if you had written this article with the point of view that these companies waist food and should change their policies, I think you would have been fine. but trying to justify your stealing because they aren't operating their businesses they way you think they should seems as logical as justifying the murder of abortion clinic doctors because you think what they are doing is wrong.

did you actually do any research for this article or did you just talk to your friends that happen to work at one of these stores?

are you an executive for whole foods? please, please, please, if you are going to post some bullshit like this post under a non anonymous name. i do not steal at all so i wouldn't steal from either of these stores for ANY reason. BUT i could give a shit less if someone steals some overpriced organic bullshit whether it is for survival or as an act of angst. why do you care?

obviously you did zero research for this article since every single thing you said about the prepared foods at whole foods is completely untrue. what i find amusing is that instead of making some point about "waste" all you managed to do was shoot yourselves in the foot - 90% of the people who work at whole foods are involved in the arts/music/theater community and you really pissed us off with your bullshit article. the only way most of us are able to continue making art is by having a steady well-paying job with insurance which whole foods provides. i'm appalled at the lack of journalism going on here - i've enjoyed your paper for years and treasured the "other" view you provided - a real local paper that isn't influenced by advertisers or publishers is rare and i was happy to lend my support. that's over now. whole foods used to carry free press out in front of the store but we don't anymore - we composted them.

shame on you free press, shame on you.
