Get Involved!

This morning, orange juice nearly came out Susan's nose at this bark-out-loud juxtaposition in the newspaper.

The article describes a sad account of whistleblowers whose careers were subsequently ruined by speaking up.  In this case, nurses turned in fraudulent and downright mean doctors. The nurses were blacklisted from hospitals across the Twin Cities and this nurse eventually left her field of work.  It took 15 years for justice.

"Whistleblowers are always punished," the judge assured them at the hearing.

But the Star Tribune urges WHISTLEBLOWER: GET INVOVLED!

Come on, folks!  It will be fun!


  1. I read that article but never picked up on the irony of the inducement to be a Whistleblower.
    And, who doesn't remember the Willmar 8 who valiantly struggled for a little equality and got nothing but misery for it?

  2. Carmella, as a dog, you have a decided advantage when it comes to the ways of whistleblowers. Good catch!
