John Hockenberry was accused four days ago in New York magazine article. A bunch of radio staffers have come out to say he was a bully and sent them inappropriate emails and messages.

I thought he was one of the good guys, too.

So what island of misfit toys are these broadcasters and politicians being exiled to?

From a sports site I frequent: Another Title IX coordinator has resigned from Baylor University, making her the third person in a little more than a year to leave the office tasked with investigating reports of rape on campus

Read in the SF Chronicle this morning that local tech companies are flying in models for their holiday parties. Seemed like an interesting twist in pretzel logic in this #metoo atmosphere.

Maybe it's me, but I would not bring in either female or male models for a holiday party when there is great potential for them to get hit on once people have a few drinks in them. I'm sure the men and gals are used to fending people off, but why set yourself up for that kinda scenario. Not in this environment, especially with lots of tech companies, mainly app mfgrs, having to dial back drinking at work because the found people having sex in stairways and bathrooms. And yes, providing alcohol was a perk many companies would do to attract software engineers.

I used to work for a medical association and at our annual convention, there would always be one or two doctors who were kicked out of the exhibit hall because they had inappropriately propositioned pharmaceutical sales reps. The first year, I thought it was an aberration, but it happened every one of the five years I was there. Pharma companies were notorious back in the day for hiring pretty young women as their sales staff. I only saw one teeny side of it, but I gotta figure if it happened in an exhibit hall, it was happening in doctors' offices some of the time too.

Isn't that what they're being hired for?

Why not abandon all pretense and hire hookers then?
