Holiday morality
This is an archived article that was published on sltrib.com in 2012, and information in the article may be outdated. It is provided only for personal research purposes and may not be reprinted.

The difference between good and evil in current events of the day is easily discernible.

Executives of the bankrupt Hostess get $2 million worth of bonuses, while their former workers are attending job fairs — at Christmas time! ("Hostess seeks approval for executive bonuses," Tribune, Nov. 29).

A New York City police officer who doesn't make a lot of money buys boots and socks for a homeless man costing nearly $100 ("Picture of NYPD officer's kindness an online sensation," Tribune, Nov. 29). The shoe store manager pitches in and gives the officer a $25 discount.

Here we have a stark difference between what is moral and what is immoral.
