The long arm of the law

The chief of police in West University Place, a small incorporated city within Houston, will be docked two weeks' pay for surfing naughty web sites at work. That's $3000 in pay that he'll be forfeiting. What really makes that hurt is this:

"[At] the work station in the police chief's office, there was a pattern that showed there were frequent visits to these sites during a six-day period," [the West University Place city manager] said.

According to the surveillance software, [he] made 34 visits to cybersex sites, spending about 3.4 minutes a day perusing porn.

Damn. That's $3000 for 20 minutes, or $150 per minute. Even Miss Cleo doesn't charge that much.
