Washington Initiative 522

Washington Initiative 522 is being voted on today.  I came across this article on MotherJones.com, a great site, by the way and was so inspired (I think maybe "charged up" would be the more appropriate term).

Initiative 522 is about the labeling of GMO foods.  This would be great for the consumer as there is so much hidden from us already.  Waiting with bated to breath to see what the outcome will be.

But back to the article!  I found this to be an exceptional article on an exceptional man.  I mean, who wouldn't fall in love with a man who (to quote the article)...campaigns to legalize hemp and marijuana, clean up fair trade and organic standards, and combat income inequality. Activism and charitable donations consume about half of the company's healthy profits.

I literally came home and announced, "I want to move to Carlsbad and work for Dr. Bronners!"

My idea was shot down.  Oh well.  In the meantime, I will just support the company by purchasing its products and internet stalk David Bronner.
