Dunno where you're writing from, bub, but I would LOVE to be the

I'm writing from the heart of Los Angeles, bubette, and the question above - in the situation I described - can be asked. The person being asked can file a lawsuit if they wanted to, but it would have little chance of winning. People are lawsuit happy, especially in California.

You should go back and read some of my archived posts so that you understand the full context of what I wrote.
