Sorry for the delay - snowstorms affected us, too.
We've been hearing a lot about "freedoms" in the press and in social media lately, especially when certain people make other people upset and claim to be using one freedom or another, such as Freedom of Speech or Freedom of the Press. And some of us have been victims of twisted interpretations.
I think most of us will realize that freedom is not absolute and total, such that I am not free to publish outright lies about people, even if I might get away with a parody. And am I going to limit what I say in an oathbound discussion with a fellow HP as if I were talking to a beginner, and outsider, or a TV journalist?
There needs to be a border, and there needs to be a way to define that border.
