      This has to be a youth with no common sense. Boss don't mix up the 2 issues, Yes there is a big problem on every level (health, human rights, environmental) which must be addressed. But it is very rude and disrespectful of you to put Mrs. O'Neal's sickness in the same sentence. There are ways to do things. You really expect this to promote your business? Boss man, people will stay farer from you and your company just for this. People will only call to find out who this fool is so they don't use your service or they will call to put you in your place.
