My family won't touch Santa Cruz with 10 foot pole.

My money goes to Capitola, Scotts Valley or Los Gatos/Saratoga, or better yet, the internet.

What happened to buy locally?

I guess as long as you are a politically correct liberal that little mantra goes right out the door.

Somebody should tell this idiot that he should be concentrating on fair trade for Americans and American products before enriching people he doesn't even know half way across the planet.

I for one see nothing wrong with trying to help the poor-these products are made by people who are trying to rise above their circumstances, which often are quite tragic and desperate.(Slave trafficking, for one.)
Why be snippy about other people's compassion?
