Is that a commercial or something else? URL?

Indeed I did. It's always fun to touch raw nerves. Bring on all the guns
in the world, and all the logic you want, and I'll still be happy about
the thought of the extinction of the human race. I can do this. My
thoughts and dreams are my own, and I like them, as they morph and as they
strengthen, and even as they self-destruct. In any case, I'll be sure to
write this into the next piece I write for a class. I like a bit of
steam face to face, as well as on a maillist. (:

Yes, what an aberration. (: Anyhow, who's Capital, and is he going to
reverse all the damage we've already done to our water supply, or will he
help "fix" all the kids who are running around thinking shooting people is
cool because their parents are mostly absent from their lives? Etc?

Hm, what is the name of it? I was just talking to someone about the same
book not long ago, I think.
