Common Sense

Owning a computer and possessing the ability to craft a few sentences doesn't necessarily indicate the presence of any common sense. Proof was published today in the San Francisco Chronicle.
Kaiser Permanente is squaring off in court next week against a fired employee, who dubs herself the "Diva of Disgruntled," for her posting of links to confidential patient information on her Internet blog.
The names, addresses, telephone numbers, medical record numbers and, in some cases, laboratory test results of about 140 Kaiser members were posted on three Web sites, all of which were taken down this month.
According to the Chronicle, the "Diva", Elisa D. Cooper, also attempted to sell patient information on eBay.
