A Playground Monitor by Any Other Name

Google has a feature called "Google Alerts." You can type in a name or place or any words and when Google "sees" something featuring those words, you get an alert via email. I've set up alerts for my real name, my blog nickname, other authors' names and a few other non-writing-related things.

Lately my inbox has been innundated with alerts about a playground monitor in New Jersey.

An elementary school cafeteria worker and playground monitor, who had an extensive career in the adult entertainment industry, is becoming a New Jersey school district's legal nightmare.

Some parents in Vineland, N.J., as well as the board of education president, want Louisa C. Tuck fired, but district officials were advised by their lawyers and those from the New Jersey School Board Association they have no legal grounds to terminate the 32-year-old from her $5,772-a-year part-time job as an aide in the lunchroom and playground, The Daily Journal reported.

May I be the first to say that while I am at times entertaining, this is NOT me. ;-)

We now return you to our regularly scheduled programming.
