Art teacher in hot water over topless photos
- Meet Tamara
, a 29 year old art teacher at Austin High School (notable alumni
) in Austin, TX. She's in danger of losing her job with the Austin independent School District over inappropriate photos posted to her Flickr account
(may be NSFW). "I'm an artist and I'm going to participate in the arts," Hoover said. "If that's not something they want me to do then I want to be told that. I don't feel as if I was doing anything that was beyond expectations."

Another blogger gets fired for blogging.
Blogebrity is reporting that the latest victim is Jessa Jeffries whose blog Jessaisms
got her booted. But mysteriously there is no explaination on her blog as to what her offense was and a cached
version reveals nothing negative to her workplace or any illegalities. Unless of course they stumbled across some of her anti-Bush rants or pictures of Lindsay Lohan's breasts. Is that
now termination-worthy? Furthermore her now-former employer is demanding that not just her offending posts be removed, but her entire blog. How is that possible? The blog is due to disappear at noon today.

Another working blogger bites the dust
- "This was moaning about not getting your birthday off or not getting on with your boss. I wasn't libelling anyone or giving away trade secrets."
The company he worked for, Waterstones
, saw differently. More on the subject here
