Judge Rules: You Can’t Get Fired for Reading Dave Alpert’s Blog

If you’re reading this blog post at work, relax.  According to at least one judge, surfing the web at work is the equivalent of reading the paper or catching a quick personal call. 

In his decision, Spooner wrote: “It should be observed that the Internet has become the modern equivalent of a telephone or a daily newspaper, providing a combination of communication and information that most employees use as frequently in their personal lives as for their work.” 

So, while you’re taking advantage of your constitutional right to check out this blog may I suggest watching the puke video, reading my musings about ‘adventurous women’ and joining the fight against the exploitation of the Boston Chargers?  After all, it’s the American thing to do.
