    It is with a heavy heart that I must cut HAL
    workers off the payroll to save the company.

    I do not agree that those so cut are totally
    worthless and the lowest trash on the face of the planet, I
    do realize that someone has to go and they are just
    in that category.

    To make the transititon to
    un-employment as easy as possible, I am notifying all HAL
    security guards to bar those to be laid off from entering
    the HAL premises. That way they will not feel any
    emotions about leaving. There memories will be of the last
    time they walked upon our property, and hopefully at
    that time they had no idea that they would be walking
    their last steps there as an employee. Personal effects
    will be boxed up by the security guards and left in
    the employee parking lot for identification and

    We thank all these terminated employees for their
    contributions to our success and wish them well in whatever
    endeveor they choose to pursue in the


    Your friend Dick
