Repent, all ye pesticide-haters:

Organic Egg Brainwashing

Today, November 8, 2004, a shopper at the local Whole Foods market was observed buying a half dozen (6) brown, organic, cage free chicken eggs for $2.49. She could have purchase five dozen (60) regular eggs at the nearby Costco Wholesale store for $2.89. She paid 8.6 times or 760 percent more for eggs that are no different than the regular eggs. The organic food craze has reached the level of mass delusion.

I mention this only because it comes from the delightfully non-sequiturious Bible Life? Eggs? Did someone forget to tell me that Robert Atkins was Jesus reincarnated?
