And, does anyone really believe that the friggin' Coca-Cola company's juice empire's production division consists of little small-town storefronts staffed by two or three old caucasian dudes in plaid shirts manually loading oranges into a machine the size of a dorm fridge?How can anyone who gives it a momentary thought *not* believe that supermarket food comes from huge factories?
