stormy past and shower dooms weather forecaster

yet another reason why myspace and showering is dangerous:

A heroin addiction, a federal drug case and a frenzy of negative publicity were not enough to pull popular WSLS (Channel 10) meteorologist Jamey Singleton from the air.

Factor in a mean MySpace prank, though, and the forecast got much gloomier.

After a former friend posted a nude picture of Singleton, 28, on the Internet this week, Channel 10 management called in the weatherman at 1 p.m. Thursday and fired him.

As Singleton stepped out of the shower, his friend barged in with a digital camera and took a picture of him from the front, fully naked, Singleton said.

"At the time I just chuckled, like, 'Oh, my God.' I didn't ever think that he would keep it and if he did keep it, I never would have thought that he would put it on the Internet," he said.


This is why I keep my clothes on when I take showers. That and it saves time doing laundry.

There are clearly some discrepancies in the photo Jamey described in his interview and the reality depicted in the photo itself. But IMHO, Jamey is not on trial, and owes none of us an apology nor even an explanation. After all, it was not he who posted the photo.

He is likely very embarrassed by the whole thing and for that reason is trying to do some damage control. Why the pic was taken, where it was taken and by whom and what he was doing are none of anyone's business.

Personally I hope he takes the individual to court. And speaking of court, am I the only one connecting the dots as far as the timing of the conviction of the heroin merchants and the release of the photo???? Was that a mere coincidence?

Could be one of those "you ruin me and I'll ruin you" paybacks.

I recently published an article on drug rehab – here is a quote from it, in case you are interested:

Here are some alternatives you should think of:
Free standing inpatient drug rehab program – short term program for less severe addictions;
Inpatient drug rehab program – rehabilitation unit – for severe mental and physical disabilities;
Inpatient drug rehab program – detoxification unit – in general this program takes place on an outpatient basis, but sometimes withdrawal from either drugs or alcohol presupposes extreme measures to prevent relapse. It is important to help patients to change their old habits, and this may happen only through a longer-term disruption from the environment where everything remembers them of the urge to return to the substance of their addiction;
Long term residential drug rehab program – is important for those who would relapse easily (youth, chronic addicts, patients with more than one diagnosis etc.).

If you feel this helps, please drop by my website for additional information, such as drug addiction rehab information or additional resources on free drug rehab .

Regards,

Mike R.
