Work for us and like it - or else

This kind of says is all about what's ailing, as editor Don Surber puts it, the Dead Tree Media. It's one thing to prohibit criticism of the boss at the workplace. Their place, their rules, but when management wants to make bitching about the boss over a beer after work, a fireable offense - that treads on sacred ground.

Putting aside that an industry that operates under the grace of the first amendment has no business abridging free speech, attempting to destroy such a time honored tradition is short sighted and dangerous. If employees aren't allowed to vent a little steam about their greivances after work, they'll hold them until they explode in the workplace someday. I believe the term is called "going postal."

Come to think of it, I wonder if the post office enforces that rule themselves? It could explain the inordinate number of workplace shootings.
