What better way to kick off the first day back from a long holiday weekend than with a good old reader rant? Let's get right to it:

I walk past the Whole Foods on 24th and 7th everyday, and there is always a TON of deliveries and garbage on the street near the delivery entrance on 25th street. It is disgusting—everything from pallets of dry pasta to flats filled with strawberries to fish delivery chests. I'd imagine that something organic becomes non-organic after sitting on a side walk in NYC for a few hours. What's also funny is that this form of receiving is clearly the Whole Foods M.O.—I used to work in the Time Warner center, and that location's deliveries would sit on the the loading dock for hours as well.
