Vail Daily letter: Don't want it in Eagle 3.1.2010 Vail Colorado: Editorials
I have been following with some interest the Eagle River Station project proposals and the battle over it. As the son of a dreaded developer, I have a few comments: I am unimpressed by the projections of 95 percent-plus occupancy for commercial space, and the overall size of the project, 550,000 square feet, is an awful lot of space to be absorbed in the Eagle retail market, particularly with all the "For Rent" signs you see in the area. Some say the economy will recover by the time ERS is built and any way the risk is on the developer. That may be true, but more empty storefronts won't help all of the existing property owners get fair rents for their space. I was impressed by one writer who said in essence, "Let's just say 'no' now, ...

The Real Top Ten Stories of the Past Decade 1.1.2010 Commondreams.org Views
by Robert Freeman

The media are awash with talking heads bloviating about the top stories of the last decade.  The wired-in society.  The growth of organic food.  The new frugality.  This is the ritual that reveals their true function in the culture:  pacification.  It's their way of signaling the masses that Bigger Thinkers are looking after things, so go back to your Wii or Survivor or Facebook reveries.

Aisle be damned | Dan Kennedy 30.12.2009 Guardian: Comment is Free
If a 'natural and organic' supermarket such as Whole Foods sells the same junk as everyone else, then what's the point? Not long ago I made one of my periodic forays to Whole Foods, the all-natural-groceries conglomerate. My assignment was to buy a Christmas ham from a pig that had not suffered unduly, and that was relatively free of chemicals and antibiotics. I was somewhere between the Amy's organic soups and the own-label cans of vegetables when I came upon an unexpected sight: bottles of Heinz regular ketchup that, like much of the industrial food that comprises the American diet, is sweetened with high-fructose corn syrup (HFCS). As you may know, HFCS is among the laboratory-created synthetic foods targeted for elimination by ...
Corporate Agribusiness Helps Scuttle Climate Justice 29.12.2009 Commondreams.org Views
by John E. Peck

As the old saying goes, with crisis comes opportunity, and that certainly was the mentality of the corporate lobbyists that descended in droves on the U.N. Climate Change Conference in Copenhagen. In fact, the largest nongovernmental organization there was the International Emissions Trading Association, a front group representing 170 companies and hosting 66 events. Sadly, many government officials and even some nonprofit groups have fallen for this sleight of hand, mistaking an old-style protection racket for newfound corporate responsibility.
