Barney and Bill Not Allowed to Get Down on State Time

I’m scratching my head over a report in the St. Petersburg Times about a crackdown on sexually explicit email at Florida government agencies. Fourteen employees in four departments were fired, while many more were suspended and reprimanded.

The fired employees seem to be overwhelmingly female, judging by the names printed. That’s odd enough but what I’m really wondering about is the contents of the email.

Some of the e-mails included nude photos of men and women and some included videos, profanity and suggestive remarks. One animation portrayed former President Bill Clinton at his desk with Monica Lewinsky and another included Barney, the purple dinosaur, and children dancing to profane and violent gangsta rap.
