Some Justice

Imagine: you're the boss of one of New York City's most prestigous luxury hiltons. Your salary is... well, let's just say that it's so high that I don't want to think about it. Obama will probably tax it to oblivion.

Anyway. You're this honcho at the hotel. And: It's Ash Wednesday. Your employee, a bellman at the door, has an ashen cross on his forehead, in remembrance of his mortality.

You go up to him and tell him, "Wipe that f---ing s--- off of your face."

Ooops.

You see, insulting an employee's Catholic faith under these circumstances is monumentally stupid.

Not merely because it violates Title VII of the Civil Rights Act....

...but because the hotel is across the street from St. Patrick's Cathedral, and your employer rents the land your hotel is on from the Roman Catholic Church.

What happens?

You. lose. your. job.

And not only that. The CEO of the corporation flies over from London to personally render unto you your pink slip.

Read all about it here. The NY Daily News says that the miscreant's name is Niklaus Leuenberger. I look forward to seeing him flipping burgers at a McDonald's sometime soon.
