I usually see evil as a matter action, not words.Much of it is stupid. Some of it is truly great.No argument there.Cheers,

- There was a documentary on PBS in the early nineties about music. One point
it did raise is that music effects the mood of the listeners. So it does do
something to the listeners but not what certain supersticious folks warned
it would do to me. BTW, I have that Nova special on VHS tape somewhere. I'll
have to dig it out and digitize it.
