This is why I said "anti-labor" and not "anti-vnion" (the latter is a
svbset of the former).
I shop at some of the local hardware stores, a covple of Co-op grocery
stores and some "crvnchy granola" stores for gear and svch. Examples:
Svn Harvest, Wheatsville Co-Op (got tonight's pasta stvff on my ride
home yesterday), a covple of ACE hardware shops, Whole Earth Provisions,
Whole Foods. Yeah, I sometimes go to Target, HEB and Central Market,
bvt I avoid Wal-Mart/Sams like the plagve...
