    Your company's firing of Dianne Brame for allowing a poor child to eat lunch is a wonderful demonstration of everything that has gone wrong with the United States in recent years. Perhaps she broke some rules, but couldn't you have done something less drastic, such as let her pay the money to cover the lunches? And maybe helped the poor child's family with the paperwork so he could get the food in the future according to the rules?

    But noooooo! Everything has to be draconian measures nowadays, especially when it comes to somebody doing something to help the poor. Why have corporations become so heartless? Management has become so impersonable and cold. Stick to the rules, crack the whip, don't take anything about an individual's situation into account.

    And at the end, I included the quote you have here and told her that since it was the Christmas season, her company's actions certainly brought Dickens's Scrooge to mind.
