Well, let's be honest here: not everybody even enjoys music and reading. There are plenty of people I've met, whether here in the US or online in other parts of the world, who have no really strong interest in reading o= r music. Reading is, I think, for a large number of people just a utilitar= ian skill, not something that should be wasted on such things as novels. Mus= ic? That's right out. There are lots of very shallow and closeminded people in the world. We should all take care to nurture otherwise in them. =3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D= =3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D= =3D=3D=3D=3D=3D Tom Wier <artabanos@...> ICQ#: 4315704 AIM: Deuterotom Website: <> "Cogito ergo sum, sed credo ergo ero."
