5. He's a lot like 'Kramer' in that regard; he just 'says stuff'
I don't necessarily believe 'saying stuff' is a virtue. To my way of thinking, it's more pathological than virtuous. It's like there's no 'filter' between the brain and the tongue. I'm sure that particular 'brain wiring' is vital to human survival, otherwise, the completely 'free speaker' would end up with his brains bashed out in no time.
