We read Richard Thatcher's love-fest letter to the editor (regarding Whole Foods) with amusement [“Wholly Satisfied with Whole Foods,” May 4 Xpress].
Wow. We moved here from Atlanta to get away from pseudo-Republicans like you. If you don't want to support local Asheville businesses and be a part of the community, why don't you go back to Atlanta? Your muffins would be so many hours fresher, and think of all the money you would save if you bought them there instead of here! And think too how much happier everyone here would be, too. Love ya, mean it, buhbye.
