My eco-hero, Joanna, just sent me this link to Multinational Monitor’s 10 worst corporations of 2008. It reads like a post-apocalyptic horror story of corruption and human rights abuses.
To make it worse, I filled the gas tank at Chevron on Wednesday, and I’m pretty sure there’s a Costco case of Dole pineapple in the pantry.
It’s all a little ironic, since I recently told Joanna what an uplifting person she was. And then she sends me this for breakfast? Yeesh.
Having read it and thoroughly depressed myself, I will be retreating to my dream library now. It has dark wood shelves and a rolling ladder. And a butler. He makes lattés. With organic, shade-grown coffee.
If you don’t have an imaginary butler, you can lift your spirits with this video. (Although, with the remains of my shallow, consumerist self, I can’t help wishing the lead singer had spent slightly more on hair products.)
