Letter: Appreciates personal visit by Bunn
As we head into the "Negative Campaign Ad season," I was inspired by a hotel chain's promotion: guests are encouraged to tell management not only when they have a complaint about a staff member, but also when they found a staff member doing something right. In this spirit, I'm happy...
