The Internet is forever...

Over the weekend, I got an e-mail sent to Jane at Lightlink and to me, from a med student who wishes Googling him didn't bring up this news story about his cataclysmic misjudgement. I'm not sure why he contacted Jane and me, since Lightlink and aren't responsible for WVBR's news pages, but I replied to him and passed his note along.

Frankly, I have mixed feelings about this. I feel sorry for the guy, and can sympathize with his desire to focus on his future and not his past. But some fuck-ups should haunt you for the rest of your life.

If I were a prospective employer, I'd want to know this guy could probably never get a security clearance, and if I were a prospective date, I'd certainly want to know how he deals with exes. :-\
