Even if you oppose the right-wing crusade against birth control, you might actually be funding it when you go grocery shopping.
Eden Foods, one of the most widely-available organic food brands, is suing the Obama Administration over the rule that health insurance plans must cover birth control, claiming that they have the right to deny their female employees access birth control. The lawsuit is motivated by radical right-wing ideology, and the company says that birth control involves “immoral and unnatural practices.”1 Not what you had in mind when you picked up that soy milk?
But here’s the good news: Eden Foods’s customer base includes lots of progressive-minded folks who don’t want their grocery money to go to a sexist campaign against basic health care. So far, 60,000 UltraViolet members have signed the petition demanding that they drop the lawsuit. Thousands more have called them out on social media, and the uproar is getting them a lot of bad press. Now, we need to show them that the outrage is affecting their bottom line.
If we all stop buying Eden products until they drop their lawsuit, they’ll see how bad their attack on birth control is for business. That’s why we put together this handy guide with alternatives to their most popular items–take a look, take those Eden products off your grocery list, and spread the word by sharing the guide with your friends.

I wasn’t able to photograph any of the “Punk: Chaos to Couture” exhibit at the Metropolitan Museum. Taking photos is forbidden, and they are not kidding. I felt the penalty might be death. Thank goodness there’s a link: http://gothamist.com/2013/05/06/photos_punk_fashion_at_the_metropol.php#photo-13
Claus Oldenburg has two exhibits at MoMA. One is a wonderful collection of early work, oversized hamburgers, underwear, blouses, household objects…lovely black and white drawings…downstairs in the atrium are two itty bitty museums, more like tunnels. One is the Mouse Museum, and the other the Ray Gun. I apologize for fuzziness in the photos; it was very dark in there. The Ray Gun museum is made up of found objects that look like guns, rusty shapes, old pieces of machinery…things that Oldenburg discovered in his neighborhood, odd bits of beauty. Worth traveling to see.
This final shot is from Ray Gun museum. What i do love is his eye. These are all found objects, and he sees their resemblance to guns.
