  1. Jack, why…

    Why ruin something nice.

    A guy is trying to do what he felt is the right thing to do and in one fell swoop you shoot down the positivity of the article.

    Honesty, my TLS comrades, honesty…

    The letter/check writer has imparted an invaluable lesson to us all as we approach Yom Kippur.

    G’mar Chasima Toiva to all!

  2. I read the letter before I read the article. Before I read the article, I said to myself, knowing the owner, there was NO WAY in the world he was putting in this check. Then I read the article, where he says he’s not cashing in that check. I live that guy !! He rocks !!

  3. Im 100% with jogathon. I saw the letter and I knew that check wasnt gonna be deposited. Not a chance. Im lad I was right. That owner is a great guy. Its also a great store. And good food !!
