Dan RodricksDOUG BALOG'S story - and he's sticking to it - is that he was fired because his dad did a doodle, and his brother scanned the doodle and e-mailed the doodle, and the doodle ended up on Balog's computer at work. A computer technician discovered the doodle and reported the doodle to Balog's boss - and perhaps even a higher authority - and Balog's boss fired him. The doodle wasn't pornographic. It wasn't racist. It wasn't sexist. It was, if anything, an attempt at geopolitical humor.
