File this under "Shoot the Messenger"
You'd think Vallejo City Manager Joseph Tanner, whose city filed for Chapter 9 bankruptcy in May, would have more important things to do than worry about what Web sites his employees visit. But on Monday, Tanner found time to add the Vallejo Times-Herald's Web site and the Vallejo Is Burning blog to the list of Internet addresses employees cannot access from city computers, according to the Chron and Times-Herald. "We blocked these because they are political in nature," Tanner said. "We blocked them because one is an anti-bankruptcy site and the other is a rag of a newspaper." Also banned is the Vallejo Bankruptcy Update site, which is written by former city workers.
