Email: Coming back to bite ya'

Have you heard about Michael Brown's Katrina-related emails?
In the days leading up to Katrina, former FEMA Director Michael Brown sent jocular e-mails to colleagues about his clothing, finding a dog-sitter and asking if he could quit, an investigation revealed.

The House panel investigating the government’s slow response to the storm has released pages of internal e-mail dating from before Katrina hit on Aug. 29 in which Brown appears focused on issues other than the catastrophe at hand.
I'm sure you'd like to read them; click here.

Word of warning to all of us who use email: It sticks around and will come back to bite you. Hmm, I wonder what I've written recently...
