The Penalty for Blogging

Sometimes people ask me if it would really be that bad if I got outed as Blonde Justice. I don't know, I try to be pretty careful, I don't name names, I change details of stories to protect others' privacy and confidentiality but still convey my experiences.

This story in the NY Times last week, though, reminded me just how important staying anonymous is, A Legal Battle for Lawyers - Online Attitude vs. Rules of the Bar:

But Mr. Conway is a lawyer. And unlike millions of other online hotheads, he found himself hauled up before the Florida bar, which in April issued a reprimand and a fine for his intemperate blog post...

That penalty is light compared with the price paid by Kristine A. Peshek, a lawyer in Illinois who lost her job as an assistant public defender after 19 years of service over blog postings and who now faces disciplinary hearings as well.

Alright, It's Over

I've finally made my decision. I'm deleting my Tivo season pass of The Secret Life of the American Teenager.

I just can't take it anymore.

It almost got saved with that little cameo of the guy from My Boys. But, honestly, it's not even one of my favorite guys from My Boys (Brendo).

Anyway, that scene, with Ricky slapping Adrian and saying "I just want sex! Give me sex now!" Like, once you have sex you just turn into some kind of sex-crazed maniac rapist or something? And then Adrian says "Let me come to your therapist with you!" WTF? Seriously.

And now Grace's mom starts dating (the guy from My Boys) and he is the brother of the pilot that killed her husband? Does it get more ridiculous? And he happens to also be a doctor, like her father? A doctor-pilot?

The only reason why I kind of wanted to keep watching was to find out about Ben's girlfriend in Italy.

Ok, the season finale is next week. I'll watch that, and then I'm out. For good.

Besides, Greek is back.
