Re: Guess which game PBS says caused Lanza to kill people?

I guess because of Mindy McCready's suicide we can say that country music makes you suicidal, right?

You can't draw cause and effect when you have no control over the experiment. There are too many variables to say that one thing in a person's life equals something else. That's like saying he ate Tinkies (tm) and that made him do it.

I guess that's my problem, I'm too rational.

true. especially since there are such huge numbers readily available of all those "causes" NOT producing the alleged effect. bad science is bad.

You know on Bones there was a character that was blamed for being a serial killer because he was "hyper rational" (though he actually didn't do it.)

When I read the title I thought maybe it was about the blade-runner that murdered his wife.

then read the OP, oh the newtown killer, hadn't even heard his name before.

easy now... I love most forms of music. The great thing about Country music... is that it is one of the last genres of music that is unafraid to be unabashedly patriotic (despite its detractors... I'm looking at you (now-irrelevant) dixie chicks).

I was just kidding Immer, I too love most all music. Having played guitar since age 12 I appreciate most styles. To be honest Jerry Reed is still one of my top 5 guitarists..
