Re: “The Dark Side of Amazon

While I enjoy listening to Jim Hightower's rants on NPR with my morning coffee, I was sorry to see his byline on the feature article in this week's issue. I don't argue the point that the workers in Amazon's distribution centers endure a miserable existence--I read the Mother Jones article he refers to. But he does lay it on with a trowel. I was surprised that the photo of Mr. Bezos was not enhanced with horns and a tail.

I think it's a shame that the Express chose to run this rant as their feature article, rather than running a good piece of local journalism from a local writer.

I have to admit to some prejudice here--I wrote a couple of features for the Express way back in the day when it was the East Bay Express and they had wonderful editors and--gasp!--fact checkers!

I am frequently disappointed with the Express in its current form, but I'd really hate to see it disappear.

Re: “All You Can Handle

I detest fast food and fast food restaurants, but I have a secret passion for McDonald's hash browns. It's embarassing, but now I don't feel quite so bad.
