: You are absolutely right!

*grin* Nice to hear that it's official.

: I will however disagree w/you on one point. It is most definately the right and responsibility of every individual on the face of the planet to judge what is right or wrong (for themselves).

No arguments here.

: I would even venture to say that if a particular medium could be proven to tout nothing other than negativity, and destruction that it is inherintly BAD. I'm sure you'd agree that the support of gangland violence and drug use could have no positive impact on any individual. Therefore it is up to the individual to choose...right or wrong.

I agree with you, but also point out there is a very big qualification in what you've said. Can any medium be proven to tout only negativity? I think that this is the crux of the problem. We would like to get rid of the truly bad things, but nobody agrees on what these are, which means to disallow anything wouldn't be right and individual freedom of choice to buy the music or whatever prevails.

: What do you think. Does this boat float?

*grin* she's sailing heavy, but she isn't taking on water.
