Perhaps the boss ought to be glad they weren't blogging

Originally uploaded by yudhiest.
Did you hear about the Hooksett Four, fired for gossiping at work? The four women, employees of the Town of Hooksett in New Hampshire, were canned
in April after speaking to a lawyer the town hired as a fact-finder to rout out chatterboxes.

They say questions about a close relationship between Town Administrator David Jodoin and a female employee, identified only as "A" in the lawyer's report, drifted into Town Hall sometime in March. They say they weren't the only ones who discussed the rumor, and dismissed it as untrue after briefly talking about it.
Harsh. The city fathers ought to just be happy these employees weren't blogging, but, rather, just kibitzing around the water cooler.
