ONLY Exclusions/Exceptions/Defenses to defamation:
•“fair comment”- a statement of opinion which was arrived at based on accurate facts, which do not allege dishonorable motives by the person about whom the statements were made.
• Statements made about a public person (political candidates, governmental officeholder, movie star, author, celebrity, sports hero, etc.) are usually exempt, even if they are untrue and harmful. However, if they were made with malice – with hate, dislike, intent and/or desire to harm and with reckless disregard for the truth – the public person may have a cause of action. This was determined by the U.S. Supreme Court and has been re-interpreted various times.
• Minor errors in reporting, such as publishing a person’s age or title inaccurately or providing the wrong address.
• Governmental bodies due to the premise that a non-personal entity cannot have intent.
• Public records are exempt from claims of libel.
• Truth – the communication was true.

I tried watching what I say once. But I couldn't see anything at all. My words didn't have any color to em. All transparent like. It was awful. I never tried that again.

So now I just jibber jabber away, paying no mind at all to what I say. It's so much more fulfilling than if I tried to watch it.

Awww ain't life grand. Any day above ground is a good one, I always say, with total abandon to what my words look like.

"People should watch what they say"...not to change the subject, but should'nt that be "listen" to what They say instead.

I mean if it's a really cold day you can see Your breath, but rarely can one see words.

Ummm not enough carrots in your High Mountain diet methinks.

I'm about ready to get rid of this short wave radio, I seem to have lost interest in it. Nobody wants to send me the time and frequency to listen to and beam me out a little pirate show and see if I can pick it up.

I'm thinking, that in this day and age, when you can be talking to someone in Hong Kong, and tell them that they've got a big glump of spinach between their teeth, because you're video-confrencing with them, short wave radio might be the wave of the future.
