Re "Vandals lash out in Seattle," May 2

Kudos to Occupy Seattle for smashing windows at an American Apparel store. This U.S.-based company keeps its manufacturing in the country (Los Angeles, to be exact), creating thousands of U.S. retail and manufacturing jobs. It struggles for a profit.

The protesters also targeted Starbucks, a U.S.-based company with several coffee bean roasting plants across the country. It plans on building a new plant in Georgia and reactivating a once-dormant factory in Ohio to make mugs. Starbucks provides jobs to tens of thousands of American workers.

Great work, Occupy Seattle. Way to gain respect.
