You can’t make this stuff up! “Another business supporter is David Bonner, president of Dr. Bonner’s Magic Soup, whatever that entails,” “Bored Georgeman,” (AKA George Boardman), The Union’s weekly columnist writes this week, referring to supporters of Proposition 64 (to legalize recreational marijuana in California).
What a dunce! First his name is Dr. Bronner, not “Dr. Bonner.” Then it’s “Soap,” not “Soup.”
The bright and wordy labels of Dr. Bronner’s soaps are a common site at most organic food stores — and have been around since the ’60 and before.
“The Bronner’s story also happens to be the tale of the top-selling organic liquid and bar soap brand in North America,” as Inc. writes. “Dr. Bronner’s notched more than $44 million in sales in 2011. It has grown well over 1,000 percent in the past 12 years. The company’s president since 1998, 38-year-old David Bronner, is a ponytailed marijuana activist who drives a rainbow Mercedes that runs on French fry grease.”
This is another example of George Boardman’s ignorance. Mr. Podunk.
