Though I feel quite strongly that CEO John Mackey is being treated unfairly, and intend to spend more money than I otherwise would at his stores to counteract the burgeoning boycott, I'm not going to write about this subject at length, because Radley Balko (here and here), Julian Sanchez (here and here) and David Frum have already done it better than I can. Note my counter-the-boycott impulse doesn't have anything to do with my agreement or disagreement with Mr. Mackey's position on healthcare. Were conservatives boycotting his stores for taking an opposite position on the subject I'd increase my shopping there as readily -- the only difference is that counteracting a left-leaning boycott will afford me less satisfaction when I buy arugula and spicy dijon mustard.
