Little Fish Swallowed Whole 

Pin It

The first instance of a big fish corporation chomping on a little fish organic/natural food Salt Lake City company that I am aware of is when General Mills bought Celestial Seasonings [“The Bleach & the Bees,” March 26, City Weekly].

It was disheartening then as now to see small, unique natural food companies swallowed up by corporations continuing to market the product as homespun. The writing was on the wall as antitrust/monopoly laws along with financial regulation laws were steadily eroded in the ensuing years.

  • A Strange and Barbaric Practice

    In the well-written City Weekly cover story on circumcision ["Circumcision Decision," Sept. 17], the God of the Jewish, Muslim and Christian religions is credited with beginning this practice: God demands that the 99-year- old Abraham cut off his foreskin in order to prove his loyalty.

  • Mike Noel's Resistance to Reason

    I enjoyed Colby Frazier's cover story about state Rep. Mike Noel, R-Kanab ["The Herd Bull of the House," May 14, City Weekly]. I attended the Great Public Lands Gamble Rally at the Capitol in January 2015, at which Noel audaciously stepped up to the microphone to attempt a refutation (the gospel according to St. Mike) of the "lies" being perpetrated by the proponents of public lands.
