Signed Scorecards? Evidence

Have you been following the contretemps over President Bush's nominee to the Supreme Court, Harriet Miers? There's an interesting article in the Austin American-Statesman about how Miers came into the Bush circle.

Bush hired Miers to represent him in lawsuit filed by a former caretaker at Bush's private fishing resort near Athens. The caretaker was claiming he was wrongfully fired after being injured on the job.

What does this have to do with golf? Nothing, really, so don't read the article unless you're interested in the relationship between Miers and Bush. But ...

There was this nugget in the article: members of the resort argued that the caretaker deserved to be fired because he was shirking his duties in favor of, among other things, playing golf. As evidence, they produced signed scorecards from the local country club.

Let this be a lesson to us all: Next time we shirk our responsibilities in favor of golf, don't sign the scorecard!
