While I agree that would be bad PR, it shouldn't be. A company should be able to say that and the public should say, "thank you!"A 1 legged army Veteran getting charge $50 to go 5 miles to a hurricane shelter?
"We Mercilessly jacked up the rates to ensure our high quality of service"
the PR backlash (as well as legal problems) that could come out of that.. wow...
