Tweeting Your Miscarriage: Is Nothing Sacred? -- Politics Daily

Tweeting Your Miscarriage: Is Nothing Sacred? -- Politics Daily: "Short answer: R U kidding? No bodily function, emotional trauma or personal exchange is beyond bounds or beneath broadcasting these days. Thus did 43-year-old Penelope Trunk, CEO of the aptly named 'Brazen Careerist'' blog, Twitter her recent miscarriage: 'I'm in a board meeting. Having a miscarriage. Thank goodness, because there's a f***-up 3-week hoop-jump to have an abortion in Wisconsin.' (The asterisks are mine, not hers.)

Although my own first reaction was to look away and keep walking, such squeamishness was not widely shared. In fact, if the tweet was in part a PR stunt by Trunk, who makes her living by – wait for it -- offering career advice to the young, it worked to perfection, and set virtual jaws flapping across the blogosphere and the political spectrum."
