e-Discovery LOL? Weiner Resigns

MP900444351 Normally, this would be relegated to the 'Twit List', but I'm making an exception.  A lot of people are still laughing about this issue…but is it funny?  Let's review.  A guy initiates some sexting, takes a few raunchy photos of himself and…that's about it.  Unfortunately, this guy happens to be a U.S. Congressman, but a couple of weeks ago, that was his claim to fame.  Now, look at what's changed:

  • He's disgraced himself and embarrassed his family
  • We can only imagine what his wife is going through (and a newlywed, no less)
  • He's resigned his prestigious position
  • A novelty company has created an X-Rated doll to mock him

You know what else?  He could be you.  What's the only thing that distinguishes him?


“Mr. Sheen, Tiger Woods is on Line One. He wants his Blood back…”

I refrained from writing about Charlie Sheen because, well, what's the point?  Another warning about not memorializing your felonies on radio, TV and social networks?

But in a strange way, his firing today dovetails with my earlier post.

'Expensive' lawyers are deemed expendable, but apparently so is the (reportedly) highest-paid actor on TV.

It all depends on what your value is to someone else, doesn't it?

Twitter? Free. True Cost? $430,000 (+ Interest)!

Just after the new year, I posted about a defamation suit filed against Courtney Love.  Well, that suit has been settled by Love for $430,000 plus interest, as noted in the headline.

Think about this for a moment, folks.  Love creates a free account on a service that didn't exist a few years ago.  She proceeds to use it to defame (according to the plaintiff, anyway) and ends up settling for what most of us would consider to be a very painful sum.

It used to be if you were angry at someone, they'd tell you to go home and punch your pillow.  Heck, there was always Primal Scream therapy.  No matter how foolish it may have been for Love to take to Twitter with her rampage, I doubt it ever crossed her mind that this would be the end result.

Technology has provided no shortage of outlets.  What we need are a few more inlets.
