I Hate Ben and Jerry's too

The War on Guns posts a nice piece that Guns and Ammo apparently refused (due to legal concerns)
One can only hope the Million Moms get their pie from Sara Lee. And maybe serve it with a (healthy?) scoop of Ben & Jerry’s…
go read the whole thing.

I recall reading that Ben & Jerry's, wanting to live the BS that socialists and green-party nitwits had been preaching, adopted the corporate doctrine that nobody in the company would make more than 10-times what the lowest paid employee earned. The best part of the story is that it was a flop. They couldn't find a competent CEO at that rate, and the company was doing poorly. They eventually caved and offered a proper salary to attract a competent CEO. Heh. Assholes.

You're right about the CEO thing. I teach a graduate class in business, government, and society part-time, and this case is part of the curriculum.

Later still, they sold out to Unilever...heh.
