contradictions

My life is full of them. Is that true of most people?

I rage against McDonald's and its like, yet today I went in there and bought a "fruit and yogurt parfait". I even recommended it to someone else in there, who asked.

I know that the bottom line is what causes large companies to seek cheap labor and to exploit it. I know that these same companies use advertising to get us to buy what we do not need, that they engage in business practices that do not bear much scrutiny. That did not stop me from going into Best Buy today, buying an ink cartridge for my printer and some blank videotapes.

I like to make my own food, and am in the process of putting together simple, inexpensive food type gifts for Christmas. At the same time as I am scanning prices of beans (I think I paid $1.50 for the highest-priced bag) I can be contemplating stopping by Starbucks and laying out over three dollars for an espresso with some foamy milk added.

There is really no end to it.
