09/23/2005: "Agrees With Gordy, Up To A Point.."


Dear Editor:

I share Gordy Petersen's cynical knowledge that corporations generally base decisions on the bottom line, but we differ about which of those decisions really make us angry.

My fury goes to the tobacco pushers, the tax dodgers, those that pay their workers a pittance (or send their jobs offshore) while paying obscene amounts to the top brass, those that don't provide health insurance to their employees (leaving that distasteful responsibility to the taxpayers) -- and, yes, I could go on and on.

But Gordy's upset when motels post a discreet notice that you hang your towel on the rack if you don't need to have it washed, or drop it in the bathtub if you do.
