Featured Letter

In bad taste

Please be aware that there are still a significant number of individuals that are seeking employment but are unable to find it. Accordingly, I found the "GET A JOB" pronouncement depicted in Slice of Life (Aug. 20) to be not only insensitive but also offensive.

I called the Perk Downtown to advise them that some people might find the sign to be less than amusing. I talked to a purported manager. I was given excuses. No realization that, possibly, the sign was in bad taste. No attempt at an apology because I was offended. While I have frequented the establishment numerous times in the past, I will not be doing so again.
