    Thanks for this list. I wish you could add their phone numbers. Would like to contact them all, tell them why we will boycott their products.

    Roundup or witch hunt?

    I agree with Mr. Hollister’s comment.

    The Anderson Valley Advertiser would be a more respectable and respected newspaper if it desisted from publishing the propaganda of homosexuals, suffragists, communists, atheists, and environmentalists.

      And I suppose the fools in AVA News Service think Zyklon B. should also have been banned–as well as the nonsense about it being used to kill people.

      Everyone knows that it was merely used as a delouser. Those people never bathed.

    Since I can never agree with Louis, I am advocating for the AVA to form a roving mob dressed and hooded in green sheets, that goes to each Roundup user and burns an Earth figure at the entrance of their premises. That should give a firm first warning. (Don’t do this during fire season)
