Serious for a Moment…
… and for a change, I’m sure my erstwhile readers (Hi Mom!) are saying.
I have been following “Paulette-gate” today with quite a bit of interest, and not just because we got a little extra traffic around here.
I was reading comments on some of the other blogs dealing with this, and I have to say there is quite a bit of serious vitriol going around. Not just vitriol, but downright meanness. I’ve heard people refer to Ms. Richardson as a “bitch” and a four-letter word that is considered very vulgar when referring to a woman. And Greg “Bringin’ the” Payne was not spared either in the comments. Something about being a captain of a ship…
There has to be a better way to describe people you disagree with than using language like this. Not that I’m any saint, but I think you can see where I am being humorous and a little snarky as opposed to mean and cruel. There’s a line where language like that described is not necessary.

Now, more about Paulette dePascal’s lack of sense in denying that any of this even happened. You’d think she’d be able to come up with a better statement than trying to attack Brad Winter while pretending this email never happened. At least that’s what they taught us in PR 101.
