(I did have that screen name before this discussion. :)
I know it's an idea that's taking hold. I've seen a lot of letters & posts demanding that people "sign everything". (possibly from people who have been getting a bit of flak lately & those same people may have a battery of lawyers at the ready, & those lawyers are being paid by a bigger entity, not that individual.

Being an adult is risky business, as is being a politician, a public figure, or a journalist.

There is some merit to asking posters or letter writers to sign their names, but there is also the responsibility & moral obligation of those in office & those given a public trust by the nature of their job or position to also behave as adults. (And that's without a battery of pre-paid lawyers to back them up when they choose not to.)

If telling the truth is part of one's job description, never mind the lawyers. Just do the job!
