Facebook Rants Cost Fireman His Job

Last week a 16 year veteran of the Bourne, Mass. fire department was fired for a series of Facebook posts last summer slamming gays, special needs residents, the city of Bourne, and his colleagues at the fire department.

A union representing the fire department is planning to appeal, primarily because they hold that the Facebook postings were protected and meant only for his friends and family.
