[-empyre-] I feel today a bit patriotic :)

Hi - I agree with you here, however I do not watch beheading or other 
torture videos; I know no one personally who does. They're not shown on 
the new here. At one point I did see the beheading of Daniel Pearl; I felt 
connected to the case and wanted to 'face' the violence, however mediated.

This isn't to say that there's not an interest in tortured bodies in this 
country; anyone who has seen an episode of Bones knows has graphic these 
kinds of images can be. But there are many people, myself included, who 
have too many nightmares; I'd write more but we're in NY for a performance 
and the connection where we're staying is close to non-existent.

Apologies, Alan
