The most silly article I've seen in years

Steve Lipman tries to make a big deal about the politics of the founders of Hasgen-Dazs and Ben and Jerry's ice creams in this article in the Jewish Week:

http://www.thejewishweek.com/news/newscontent.php3?artid=13380

He argues that one should look at the politics of companies before making purchases. I have no problem with that idea. But it doesn't apply to ice cream: both Hasgen-Dazs and Ben and Jerry's are now owned by apolitical international agribusiness conglomerates: 1983 the founders of Hagen Dazs sold their company to Pillsbury, which merged with General Mills in 2001. And in 2000, Ben and Jerry's was sold to Unilever. Jews can enjoy ice cream produced by these and other brands without being concerned about the political impact of their sweet tooth.

Agreed.

On a similar note, I've never been a big fan of boycotts of most German companies (and esp. Japanese!) at this point in time. Of course, I had no relatives in the war, save a grandfather in the US Air Force who I'm not sure ever went to Europe, so I may have lower sensitivity on this - but it seems like it a) only hurts the consumer and b) the companies are not at all the same as they were in 1945.

Look at who owns Unilever.
Then, see what they have done to other companies like Bryer's.
Once, Bryer's was the only true ice cream with no additives, no gums, no preservatives.
It was founded as a local Philadelphia creamery whose pledge was purity.
With the take over by Unilever, it has gone corporate, lost its local values, added gums and preservatives, and from its absentee owner position deprived the consumer of a once highly cherished product.
All this at the hands of a tribe that has no skill to create on their own and who instead buy what others have made for quick personal gain.

Infant Joy

'I have no name;

I am but two days old.

What shall I call thee?

'I happy am,

Joy is my name.

Sweet joy befall thee!

Pretty Joy!

Sweet Joy, but two days old.
Sweet Joy I call thee:

Thou dost smile,

I sing the while,

Sweet joy befall thee!
