File this one under "Impressions"

  1. Pay now or pay later
    There is no such thing as cheap. Quality costs, and eventually I'll pay the price. Defer it, and the interest due makes it really expensive. This is true for food, as it is for everything else. How much does 5 years with cancer really cost?
  2. There are fads in natural foods
    The core is, I need to improve my inputs.
  3. The medical establishment knows bandaids
    Statins are not a solution, they're a bandaid. They are a treatment of the symptoms, not the cause. Treating symptoms causes problems, and doesn't solve any. If your doctor treats symptoms, run. Find another doctor. You aren't going to get any healthier under his/her care anyway.
  4. We're all a little bit hypocritical
    This latest instalment has to do with outrage regarding environmental destruction in third world countries while we live off the benefits of environmental destruction in our own back yard. Either we go easier on them, or we start transferring the wealth. Or maybe a bit of both.
  5. When I pay too little, I marginalize people
    It doesn't matter if it's a coffee grower in Guatemala, a coconut farmer in the South Pacific, a factory worker in Bangladesh, or a temporary warehouse worker at Walmart. Paying too little is a sign of disrespect. You can't build a society, a culture, or a community by disrespecting people.
  6. If I haven't learned anything by the end of today, it's because I wasn't trying.
