Dangerous Exercise

Subtitle =
This Is an NRI/NP Post
(This is a No Red Ink/No Photograph Post)
But there is a surplus of acronyms

If exercising Freedom of Speech is the most vigorous part of your daily work-out, then sooner or later, you will be guilty of TMI (Too Much information). A Through the Looking Glass connection is necessary here: Freedom of Speech must not be completely divorced from the Freedom of Silence.

Please do not interpret these words as philosophical pontification. I need to state them because I am more guilty than most people when it comes to dispensing too much information.

It's not what you say that counts, it's what you DON'T say.
There are over fifteen websites listed for the original source of those exact words. The quote became popular because of a game show, starring Vincent Price and Betty White. But there is no hyperlink here because this is an NRI post.
