Lewd Navy Videos Had An Inadvertent Guest Star, And She Is NOT Happy About It!

We don't blame her! We'd be furious, too!

Glenn Close has inadvertently become a part of the recent Navy scandal, involving Captain Owen Honors - the former second in command of the aircraft carrier USS Enterprise - and a series of leaked videos from 2006 and 2007 that feature him making homophobic slurs, yelling expletives, mimicking masturbation, and other lewd behavior, all oh which were created while on active duty overseas!

Apparently, the actress appears during a montage at the end of one of the video, wearing a Navy hat and holding a toucan!

Although it's unclear as to why it was recorded, she has come forward to reveal that it is, in fact, her - but she had nothing to do with the clips, and is FURIOUS that they incorporated her into one!

She explains:

"I am distraught that my image has been used to perpetuate something that I abhor. The cynical, unauthorized use of my image in this video is deeply offensive and insulting, and was the result of a seemingly innocent request of me during a visit to the aircraft carrier over four years ago."

Wow!

It's pretty despicable that they took advantage of her presence on the ship and put her into something so crass without her consent!

Such an unbelievable shame!

We hope that proper actions will be taken to ensure that this kind of behavior is not tolerated anymore in that environment!

Thoughts??

Navy Captain Responsible For Lewd Videos Suspended From Post!

Filed under: Icky Icky PooPolitik

Good! This is exactly what needs to happen!

We reported yesterday that the U.S. Navy was investigating top officer, Captain Owen Honors, for his part in a series of leaked videos from 2006 and 2007 that featured him making homophobic slurs, yelling expletives, mimicking masturbation, and displaying other lewd behavior while he as second in command on the aircraft carrier USS Enterprise.

While many have come to his support, and claimed that the videos were 'morale-boosters' and taken out of context, the Navy doesn't seem to think so, and have temporarily suspended Honors of his post while the matter is investigated!

Fair enough, we say!

We imagine that there are a lot of other ways to keep crew's morale high without having to resort to homophobic slurs and lewd gestures, so we're not sure that we buy that as an excuse!

What do U think?? Was Capt. Honors out of line??

Google Gets Generous With Employees!

Filed under: Tech TalkBusiness Blitz

google giving bonuses and raises to employees for the holidays

Way to go, Google! This is an impressive move!

As a holiday bonus, Google's CEO Eric Schmidt has decided that the company will give all of its employees $1,000 cash (tax free) AND they'll be increasing salaries across the board by at least 10% starting January 1st!

As if that weren't enough, the company will also gives employees further raises equivalent to 1X each employee's target bonus for the year AND they'll be eligible for "merit increases" based on their performances.

Smart move, Google! World domination Company success will be MUCH easier to attain when employee morale is high.

What do U think of Google's holiday gesture? Generous? Not enough? Too much?
