    I just learned recently of Amazon's link to Koch brothers, and of the horrendous working conditions of the people who put items in packages.  So I'm taking a break this year.

        And consider myself very well informed.  The Allentown Morning Call did a great real-journalism article about a warehouse there that filled Amazon purchases that was incredibly depressing.  And in a diary here about it someone mentioned the ALEC connection. I don't know how deep it is, but it was enough info for me to make changes to my shopping habits.
