    I see a lot of acquisitions nowadays going down with the selling company dictating future terms -- such as "will operate in a green manner", or "will use only natural ingredients" - these become terms of the sale to maintain the owner's original vision of the product -- corporate structures have a way of destroying a brand that was built privately.

    Wish this was still live but glad to be able to revive it.

    Inspiring (at least it is to me).
