Re: Questionable Content

I love the "everybody is doing it" defense... I've gotten a couple of speeding tickets in my life when I was going with the flow of traffic 10-15 mph above the posted limit. I was the only one stopped. When I used the "common sense" reason of doing what everyone else was doing, a smile and even some laughter and then, "pay the fine."

I recommend that no one use your advice ("... you had better do the same ...") as a legal defense.

Although I've been burned a few times, I don't have many problems with people that I give permission to video my stuff because they would like to continue to have a relationship and connection with me and the other seniors in our group. I've found that clear, open communication with everyone about filming is the only thing that really works.
