I nearly missed the news myself, but I was happy to see that Ayn Rand / Ronald Reagan fan John Mackey (of Whole Foods) has finally
been forced to step down from his post as CEO, largely due to the public damage his really stupid comments about health care in Wall Street Journal op-ed caused.

The Austin Chronicle
(scroll down a bit) is where I heard the good news.
In the same issue of the Austin Chronicle, US Rep Lloyd Doggett is quoted as saying "As one of his sharehodlers and regular customers, I think John should stick to Whole Foods, because he certainly offers no formula for Whole Health Care Access."
