I do have my standards

I’m curious. Maybe it’s because I’m a writer. Or maybe I’m just plain nosy. When I hear about someone who’s doing something out of the ordinary, I want to learn more about that person and whatever it is he or she is doing. And I want to know why.

Blog fodder? Possibly.

However, I wouldn’t publish a blog post about someone without that individual’s approval, and I probably wouldn’t mention his or her name and exact location. Sadly, you can’t be too careful these days. People are entitled to their privacy, even if they are doing something unusual in a public place.

Well, that is unless they are hurting themselves or another person. For example, if I saw someone attempting to dive off a cliff using an umbrella as a parachute, I would get out my cell phone and dial 9-1-1.
