I had some of the most wonderful ice cream flavor yesterday. I do not recall what the name was. It was a donated 'box' of ice cream to one of the places I volunteer at. The only down side was it was Ben & Jerry's ice cream of which the company has been characterized by this quote:
"i'm not really a ben & jerry's fan anymore, since they really screwed up, went public, and lost control to greedy shareholders, who sold the company out to unilever, a huge shitty animal-testing super-corporation."
from hippyflip.com

This is no justice when a company is formed, does right to it's employees and consumers, donates to charity, is successful and becomes an icon of success, and then in good faith, changes management and has it's good name and character capitalized upon by a company barely giving lipservice to the original ideals of the original company.

King Lear, Alexander (the Great, but despotic), and Henry II, King of England were right to be worried.
