G’day MCB, Jeffrey here. I officially announce this as my unofficial inaugural post here at MCB.
I’ll soon be posting more here, but you can also find my personal musings on life, Love, and spirituality at Shadows of Love, or mosey on over to my other place, The Fun Times Guide to Living Green (in Jim & Lynette’s Fun Times Guide network of sites) for fun, simple, easy ways to begin living green.

Let’s face it, if we’re gonna make life changes, they’re going to have to be fun.
On the green note, Brittney tipped me off to a Whole Foods Market vs. Wild Oats Market scandal yesterday.
Apparently, as the AP reports, Whole Foods Market’s CEO John Mackey slandered Wild Oats in numerous comments using the alias “rahodeb” between 1999 and 2006…but then he tried to buy them?!
The FTC has come down on him hard and I, as Brittney does, wonder if he’ll get a do-not-pass-go trip to prison over it. What do you think?
Inaugural post shameless plug: I’ve got more on the topic at my green blog, as well.
[UPDATE: NiT has some of the story as well. Check it out.]

Jeffrey, Your post indicates that the Wild Oats CEO may be on his way to jail, but then says that the Whole Foods CEO ”slandered” Wild Oats. Huh? BTW, a written defamation, as in a post by ”rahodeb” would be a libel, not a slander. Taupe Lingerie

Jeffrey, The title of your post says that the Wild Oats CEO may be on his way to jail, but then your article attributes the wrongdoing to the Whole Foods CEO. Huh? BTW, a written defamation, as in a post by ”rahodeb,” would be a libel, not a slander.

Yeah, I’m with BongHits, you need to change the headline … it’s the Whole Foods CEO, not Wild Oats, who is in trouble.
