      “I don't understand why anyone wants their face on the news

      I think that’s especially true when a crime has been committed, and witnesses or neighbors of the suspect or coworkers of the suspect go on camera showing their faces* and spilling their guts, as soon as it airs, a fugitive suspect or an associate thereof knows exactly who they are and what they’ve said. I wonder how many people get tracked down after appearing on the local news.

    *Sometimes their full names are splashed across the television screen.

    This is one aspect that no one mentioned. Reporter interviews with someone who becomes suspect can sometimes be very telling. There are even a number of persons, eventually convicted, that seek out the media for reasons of their own, ego, misdirection, etc. (I watch far too many true crime TV shows; I once read that entire section of the library.)

    I will take good care of you and protect you all the way.  We can be joined at the hip if that makes you feel more secure. Stay close to me and don't wander off.  :  ) This post was edited by Honey Dew at January 19, 2023 8:14 AM MST

    Of course it is, you can leave the, close to you part, out to others.  If I have to fight the others in your harem, I will. hahahaha

      Wait, hold on, ladies! That’s not necessary! There’s plenty of Randy Candy going around, enough for all to enjoy, you can either share or at least take turns! Stop fighting, stop fighting; I can get my scheduling book and assign you each a slot!

    Randy Candy...I like it, it fits you to a T.  The red head doesn't shave her pits, can you live with that?

      Yes! I am a big fan of naturalness in many (NOT all) of its forms.

    Yes - my fifteen minutes of fame. I witnessed a train wreck (it was me who called for an ambulance, in the days before mobile phones became ubiquitous. Saw the trains collide and sprinted to the nearest payphone).
