    I agree that when something like this happens, the person is responsible for their own behavior. I am only opposed to undue privacy violations.

    An employee of course represents a MAJOR risk though. That's the reality.



    I remember when the librarian was a much older woman.
    Kindly, discreet, unattractive.
    We didn't know anything about her private life.
    We didn't want to know anything about her private life.
    She didn't HAVE a private life.

    @Macduff... is this a big story in your area or is it not getting much notice?

    It's basically the Civil War here over this story. Wendy Bell is a beloved news figure.

    I'm always curious about the local impact of, as well as the local angle, when a local story breaks national.

    She has a lot of fans. So the station will probably take a hit for firing her.

    In fact they do. Federal employees can be suspended or terminated for things they post while not on duty. Neither is this ability limited to government service.

    So, I take it you aren't informed on this.
    Smokers are not a protected class. H Ross Perot never hired smokers at EDS. Think about it, why would you want to hire someone that has such a filthy habit? Someone that makes such poor decisions with their own life? And now, since the ACA imposes a surcharge upon smokers it is easy to determine who smokes.

    Believing an employer should be free to decide whether or not they want to continue employing someone after they post something publicly is not the same as believing employers should control anything a person does while not on the job.

    The weird thing is that there is now more outrage over her comments and firing than the horrible shooting that brought on her comments.
