So, have you decided to boycott Whole Foods because the very green grocer’s Libertarian founder John Mackey sounded off against universal health care in the Wall Street Journal? If you haven’t yet decided, you should read what our favorite green Buddhist has to say first. The Elephant Journal‘s Waylon (“Way”) Lewis made it pretty clear over at the Huffington Post last week that things are never as simple as they seem.

Why am I writing about this now? Well, for one thing, he’s garnered hundreds of comments and they keep rolling in. And for another, I’m overworked and had a chance to read his post only with the arrival of EJ‘s newsletter, which you should subscribe to if you haven’t already—it’s, free, has tons of green info and provides lots of irreverent fun.
