A hospital rabbi who comforted the family of a security guard killed at the US Holocaust Memorial Museum has been fired for speaking and writing about the experience. Rabbi Tamara Miller wrote on a Washington Post blog in June that "racism and bigotry rang out on the National Mall" when a shooter walked up to the museum June 10 and killed security guard Stephen T. Johns. The hospital fired Miller five weeks later, saying her essay and comments to a reporter violated hospital policy and federal patient privacy rules. Miller spoke about why she attended Johns' funeral.
