OT: Amazon is buying Whole Foods -- how do we feel about this?

OT: Amazon is buying Whole Foods -- how do we feel about this?

Amazon's deal to acquire Whole Foods will be complete Monday and I'm torn.

On the one hand, you can argue it is bad when one company starts to swallow an ever growing share of the economy. And there are assertions that Amazon's impact on retail has been devastating and its employee wages are bad.

On the other hand, my family and I use Amazon all the time.  Bezos has already promised to cut prices at Whole Foods starting next week and offer Prime customers (that's me!) deals and discounts at the grocery store. I am not a food snob, but I will buy more stuff at WF if it gets cheaper. 

What say you all? Good or bad?
