IÃ¢â‚¬â„¢ve gotten a few emails from people that think the Jon Fleischman photo that accompanied MondayÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s Martin Wisckol column is hilarious.
Someone called me and said Ã¢â‚¬Å“Did you see the picture in the Register of Fleischman surfing for porn?Ã¢â‚¬Â
And hereÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s where I stand up for Jon. IÃ¢â‚¬â„¢ve blogged from bed. IÃ¢â‚¬â„¢ve blogged from coffee shops. I blogged from the kitchen table. IÃ¢â‚¬â„¢ve blogged from the car (a funny story if you ever want to hear it). There is only one place that I can say that I have never and will never blog from: work. My paycheck, like FleishmanÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s used to be, comes out of the pockets of taxpayers.
I have no right blogging on a political blog while at the office.
Standing up for Fleishman made me
sick curiousÃ¢â‚¬Â¦so I started looking at the posts that he has done over at The Flash Report, and I found that the majority of them are done in the 9 a.m. hour on weekdays. Which to many is considered Ã¢â‚¬Å“working time.Ã¢â‚¬Â
I donÃ¢â‚¬â„¢t like to think that Fleishman may have been blogging while I was paying his paycheck. But he has quit his job as CaronaÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s mouthpiece, so IÃ¢â‚¬â„¢m not going to worry about it much more. IÃ¢â‚¬â„¢ll let Jon climb under his floral blankets and continue to click away.
