Rochester companies honored for ethics
Wegmans, Harris Corp., Paychex Inc., and Xerox Corp. all made the Ethisphere Institute’s 2010 list of the World’s Most Ethical Companies. They won in the categories of food stores, aerospace industry, business services and consumer electronics, respectively.
To earn their ranking, these Rochester companies demonstrated a positive impact on the community, good leadership, and the ability to make a profit without compromising integrity.
Of these companies, Xerox and Harris Corp. were ranked last year, while Wegmans and Paychex are new to the list.
Blogger encourages vandalizing Democratic headquarters
At some point last Saturday or Sunday, a brick was thrown through a window of the Democratic headquarters on University Avenue. Attached to the brick was a note that read ‘extremism in defense of liberty is no vice.”
Now, it appears that the vandalism is consistent with the suggestions of a blogger in Alabama, who is encouraging such actions as a protest to health care reform.
‘If we do a thorough job of breaking Democrat windows, I am sure that the GOP will profit from the example,” the blog, entitled Sipsey Street Irregulars, read. ‘So, if you wish to send a message that Pelosi and her party cannot fail to hear, break their windows.”
Congresswoman Louise Slaughter’s windows were also broken, and the blog claims that similar actions have been taken in other cities across the country.
