What's your reaction to Amazon's acquisition of Whole Foods?
I'm excited -- both companies are great.
I'm worried Whole Foods will change for the worse.
I'm all for high-tech grocery ordering and drone deliveries.
This will mean more stores closing and more jobs lost.
It's the wave of the future -- you can't stop progress.
It's creepy -- I don't want Amazon taking over everything.
