Public Employees Reprimanded For Trying To Photograph Ghosts

Butte-Silver Bow County Health Department Chief Executive Matt Vincent said an investigation was opened when officials discovered a motion-sensitive camera in a little-used room of the department`s building in Butte.

The camera was found to belong to the non-profit Butte Paranormal Investigative Team, and an employee was found to have helped the group."

Trying to photograph a ghost makes as much sense as trying to remove spider web from a tree without breaking any strands, having a close encounter of the 3rd kind with an alien being without suffering an anal probe, or attempting to persuade Oprah Winfrey not to get a second plate in a buffet restaurant without getting slapped.

The public employees got off easy, I would have preferred an old school punishment. They should have been tarred and feathered, and ridden on a rail out of town.
