I was in the middle of a post when JS went down on tuesday about the Jefferson Muzzles
“ the Jefferson Muzzles are awarded as a means to draw national attention to abridgments of free speech and press and, at the same time, foster an appreciation for those tenets of the First Amendment. Because the importance and value of free expression extend far beyond the First Amendment`s limit on government censorship, acts of private censorship are not spared consideration for the dubious honor of receiving a Muzzle.”
two days later it`s still on my mind and according to my own rules, it kept but that wasn`t the real focus of my post, according to my mother there are three sides to every tale but only one of them is the absolute truth.
perspective is an interesting thing and with only one side of a story, it`s hard to get a true picture. i`m open here, but not completely. there are things and people i don`t talk about either by request or conscious decision. in real life it`s similar. this has lead to a lot of loose talk, rumours, half truths, outright lies in some cases. it`s take me a while but i`ve developed a fairly thick skin, i vacillate between bemusement and righteous indignation depending on the story.
i have one thing to say at this point, how nice.
