I hated to do it - it's against all my blogging instincts - but I had to move the post "The Ballad of Sad Howie" into draft mode. Buh-bye. The real-life subject of the post has gone ballistic, as I suspected he would, and the whole thing may boil down to litigation at some point. So - better to leave the whole thing undescribed. One mediocre post isn't worth the risk that Howie might Google himself right to my self-incriminating front door some day. My job is a big huge deal; I'm keeping it, thanks.

I understand, some posts I've removed for the same reason. Never know who might be reading them.

I have a closet full of those skeletons.

By the way...in the world of 'Google', that boat has already sailed...

It only stays cached in Google for so long. I've closed/deleted enough posts to know this from personal experience.

If you want to make it disappear from Google, it might be best to reopen the posts Google's saved, blank them, and let Google re-index 'em, replacing the old text.

I had to remind myself of the sad story, and Google obliged. Those will be there for a while, though not forever. Prudence might dictate evasive action, I'm just sayin'.

Yeah, I just read it, and...wow. I hope he doesn't get you put on FOX News any time soon. Scary. I'm normally amused by office shootouts, but I've grown rather fond of your blog. Stay safe.
