Second Life Also Destroys the Environment!
Julie MacDonald, the Interior Department's Assistant Secretary of Fish, Wildlife and Parks, is in a bit of hot water for, well, the usual cronyism bullshit that every single hack in every single department is guilty of to varying degress. One of the complaints: she was a bit careless with sensitive DoI documents, and, you know, tended to forward a lot of them on to lobbyists and right-wing think tanks. Oh, and random 14-year-old internet nerds.
Yeah, she sent the documents to some dude she was cybering with in Second Life (probably). He was probably a giant feces-spewing monster of some kind.
(Frankly, the next paragraph, wherein MacDonald can't remember why she sent a sensitive document to a guy whose name she couldn't remember and whose email address ended with chevrontexaco.com, might be even funnier. But we'll waste no opportunity to mock Second Life!)
