I am so fortunate to have been touched by her in concerts and one concert with her Pops as well. They took me there. Since my name keeps popping up I keep hearing that the "master" mind of the Paris attacks was sadistic. I'm really confused now as I was asked here if I was.

I have no problem with someone disagreeing with the choices I make when I post here I do lose respect when name calling and condescending remarks are made. In all honesty, I think I've only been given red stars for pen"men"ship in my printing as a child. Thank you Peter and Kevin J. Thanks also to JT who may have disagreed with my choice of information but at least was respectful in his response. Otherwise, I will continue to post whatever I fffffff feeeeel like. Here in my town, one death in a road accident will certainly make the front page.

The closer to home, the more it shocks us. I drove to the hotel and looked it up. Tennessee with a population of 6.

Kev, if "those guys with a straggly beard and partial to wearing long dresses with bare legs and socks" grew up on Bob Dylan music the world would be a much better place.

Back in the 89's and 90's, no. Bob Dylan's Bootleg Series, Vol. Only the 4th time in his career that Dylan has had a number 1 album.

Somewhere one of those guys with a straggly beard and partial to wearing long dresses with bare legs and socks that Peter is so startled by is thinking "fuck me, those blue eyed blond haired western nuts that keep telling me I've got things backwards are lining up to buy an album with 37 different takes of the same song! Thanks Peter for your reminiscenses on Marseilles. Actually, there is a compatriot of mine who is still a hero in Marseilles: Ari Vatanen, the winner of Paris Dakar Rallye and also a former conservative European Parliament Member.

You don't need to walk from the station to Vieux Port anymore. They sell only rotten fish there nowadays. What a shame! I should have seen this coming for thirty years ago. But I didn't. I took part in a project in the University of Gothenburg back then and wanted to give a lift to a beautiful Libanese female scientist.

I should have used Listerine I thought. Then I sat by an East-African female colleague. No-one sat there and I felt sorry about here. Someone said "you must marry her now or her brothers will kill you". I took this as a racist joke.

I don't know, I didn't marry her and I am still alive. I think that the media coverage of the attack in Paris has become excessive at this point. The bombing in Beirut a few weeks ago received a small fraction of the coverage of the Paris attacks. An unfortunate byproduct of the attack is that many politicians in the U. I don't know who is worse, a chicken hawk like Trump whose solution is to bomb the shit out of ISIS or Carson who is completely ignorant on all issues not related to the bible.

Dealing with ISIS and the others issues in the mid east is quite complex. I certainly don't claim to have the answer, but I think the heightened level of hysteria that has been fanned by the non-stop media coverage and predominantly right wing politicians is unhealthy and potentially dangerous. I wouldn't be surprised if a wave of hate crimes and attacks of Muslims is about to occur here in the U. The trouble is that the Wahabi Saudi tribal version of the religion is intent on conversion and spreading.

Think back. It was because this sort of garb was Arabian peninsula or the North-West Frontier, i. Apart from a light headscarf sometimes, most Muslims wanted to be part of whichever society they were in and saw no need for markers, as of course the vast majority still do. I taught many Muslims right through the 70s and then did teacher-training right through the 80s and 90s and I never saw this gear.

As far as clothes went, it looked much the same as Italy or Greece. But the ISIS aim is to convert and spread. Britain is around 4. France is ISIS are not just going to ignore us if we ignore them. Back to my other point, the real issue is the absence of women from power, and with immigration, the high percentage of young males travelling without women or children. Twenty years ago in Marseilles, I walked from the station to the harbour one evening and there were literally thousands of lone males crowding the streets.

Just standing around, chain smoking. The whole basis is fundamentally wrong. Bill M - I think you're right about getting more demos into the military. That's one thing the draft used to help with.

I can't help thinking if we had a draft insome of those that were so enthusiastic about invading Iraq might have paused a bit if it was their kids that had to go. Not saying there weren't any rich and brave kids signing up, but historically it's been the poorer folks that go. Consider the essential elements of a terrorist: motive, resourcefulness and 0 fear of death.

Finances and the support of an umbrella group are likely lower down on that list. If the world decides that crushing ISIS is needed, that will be a strictly offensive event. Whereas stopping terrorism at home is defensive. And each nation will have to decide how much freedom they're willing to forego in the name of safety.

On motive, it's been said that their hatred for how we live is their primary driver. Consider a couple nations that live as infidels but are not attacked: China with its state aetheism and Brazil with its very sexy Carnival, gay parades, etc. But neither would be seen as active in that part of the world. These are just unoriginal thoughts, but I think they can be indicators of how complicated this situation has become.

And then a reality check with regard to the unintended consequences of whatever path the world chooses - Entered at Wed Nov 18 CET from There's a radio broadcast of a Band concert being released next week in the UK. Hopefully the sound quality will be acceptable. I haven't heard this particular show, but have heard many other shows form this period and they were generally quite good.

Subject: "You're a funny guy. The gals there are always alot of fun, this gal and i are kibbitzing and she says 8 somehting. She looks quizzical, i said, how much was The earthworm? She saus 5.

Now, " I wanna know": Why does Norm get to have all the fun? What the fuck Norm? Ain't the rest of us funny too? I think, don't the rest of you think that as long as everyone is laughing, we should all get to tell Kevin "Shut the fuck up! Better yet, let's start with Norm.

Norm, shut the fuck up! Ha Ha! Who wants to go next? Peter Stone Brown? Norm Clancy? Really, long as everyone's laughing, step on up Subject: Utter Garbage Sorry to hijack your positivity Jerry lad but Last Friday I posted a you tube link to a song by an act called Major Lazer.

It's evidently I regret bitterly to say the most downloaded song ever. As of last Friday it had registered million hits on You Tube. Less than a week later that total now stands at million hits. That's over million hits in 5 days. Now maths ain't my strongest point but I make that almost half as many as Norm's recent spate of posts on here!!! With all this negativity, this is some positive news and the future looks bright I gotta wear shades. Jeff, "Schlub from New Jersey", that's a great phrase and would make a nice title for a book.

I'm scratching my head over your comments. I don't understand why you have such a hard time accepting the fact that someone disagrees with you. I'm a longtime fan of the Band, just like everyone else here. I don't really know what you're trying to insinuate and I don't particularly like it.

The reality is that a wide range of topics related to members of the Band and their relationships and interactions with other musicians have been discussed here over the years. So, I don't understand why my comment about Levon and Louie is anything out of the ordinary or off limits. Jeff, I don't know what anyone else reading this thinks. I wouldn't characterize the comments you've directed towards me during the past few days or prior to that as "polite".

I would describe many of them as insulting and condescending. To put it simply, you seem to have a problem accepting the fact the someone disagrees with you. Do you really expect Louie to come out and tell the interviewer that Levon had cut ties with him? Frankly, Prof. Louie is not exactly a house hold name. His minor claim to fame is his previous association with the Band. He's probably gonna give these type of interviews for the rest of his career in which he discusses his years with The Band.

The fact of the matter is that during the ramble years Levon performed with all of the other members of the Band on occasion: Garth, Jim Weider, Randy Ciarlante and many other Woodtsock area musicians who he maintained relationships with such as John Sebastian, Artie Traum and Donald Fagen. One Woodstock area musician who previously worked closely with Levon, who never performed at a ramble is Louie. Woodstock isn't exactly a metropolis. We're not talking about New York or Nashville, L.

The Woodstock music is relatively small, so I find it very difficult to believe that Louie went from being very close friends with Levon in the mid 90's to not seeing him for the last 12 or 13 years of Levon's life while living in the same community without their being some rupture in the relationship.

I have just begin reading this tiny little book written by Nick Tosches and listening to the news at the same time. We've Saved the last dance for satan. Some intelligent and heartfelt assessments here now and during the past few days relating to the Paris massacre. Some emotional viewpoints and some heated exchanges generated, all understood, but in the end a deeper bonding among us all, perhaps. I especially enjoyed Dunc's and Al Edge's contributions to this forum.

Yes, more like a pub crowd. Good analogy. And Kevin's humor and restraint, and Norm's contemplative side. Who knew? Listening to this song and watching the pictures of a life time. Even through all my mistakes and some damn hard times It's still been a great life.

Watch the pictures of a life time that has gone by. I don't think any one of us could help but feel these 5 guys helped us through it. You could always turn to music to help you get thru' and some times take your mind of things that just got too gawd damn hard. I'll be forever grateful. It's been a great part of our lives. Lets let it all go for a while and listen to this and enjoy the pictures I hope "Playing For Change" can help Gots him some of them internet muscles I guess. Bob F: Great to see you back.

I've got about 3 weeks of shows stacked up but look forward to watching Fargo down the road. Thank you. Subject: Terrorist attacks The recent terrorist attacks are bringing out the worst in many of politicians in the U.

From the growing list of governors who say they won't take Syrian refugees to many of the candidates for President. The worst offender is Ben Carson who is completely out of his element and utterly clueless. I am hoping for the announcement that the Carson campaign has been a hoax. An article just came out today in which his advisors admit that he is completely confused by foreign policy. The thought of a Carson Presidency is truly frightening.

Jeff, You must have read a different article because the one I linked to doesn't support your thesis at all. I got a very strong feeling from the article that Louie was persona non grata to Levon for many years. Hopefully, the Hoskyns book will shed some light on this.

Another war monger which I believe Putin to be finding and creating an excuse to wage war and kill all the innocent because of a terrorist group. I expect he does have a long memory. The Crimean war so long ago was another downfall for Russia and Putin has made it very clear he has no interest what so ever in a democratic country.

That war all that time ago was another war flavoured with religion. Subject: Sadavid My apologies Sadavid. I think Russian but wrote Soviet in error. Dunc: good points, but the sabotaged aircraft should be described as "Russian. I agree with you Peter that shutting off oil is highly unlikely.

Shia Muslims are being eradicated in areas taken over by Isis. In some areas, being Shia is akin to being a Jew in Nazi Germany. There is not enough coverage of the role of Saudi Araba in the British press. Isis is supported by rich individuals in Saudi and Quatar.

There's plenty more, that i won't write here. But I've made my points. If people don't, i don't give a rat's ass.

There is much more to a friendship than recording, than contracts, than appearances, constancy, or frequency. Friendships don't die so easy, and have value, may have more or less of a flow, but only death can end the possibility of a variance in physical or phone contact.

Sometimes some people try not to remember history, cause it's easier. Sometimes that gets in their way too. Cutting or severing ties as you have indicated you decided happenedis damn definite. I am a moron. There's no doubt about it.

And that only a few others do occasionally. I am a moron for continuing to. It was certainly nothing about Emmitt Till, a sad topic that opens up additional lines of thinking regarding what Ode was really about.

Subject: Vladimir Putin The worst of two or more evils Peter. I don't know. If you have had any access to watching this documentary on Putin, he is probably worse than all of them. He had his people plant bombs in those apartment buildings in Moscow. Blow up his own people while they were sleeping. Then blame it on Chechnians so he could wage war on them and kill them at will. That is genocide.

In this documentary the richest man in Russia, I can't remember his name. In their parliament he challenged Putin to be more transparent over the 32 billion dollars that was money of vice and corruption. He was jailed for ten years and his oil empire was dismantled and divided amoung the men loyal to Putin.

In the size of that country he is more feared than Hussein or any of the others you describe. What he gets away with and in particular in the Ukraine, when Hussein invaded Kuwate all countries were quick to wage war on him. Putin gets away with it. A commercial airliner that gets shot down by rebels with guns he supplied and nothing is done. I believe Obama is scared of him. Thank you Dunc you put is very succinctly. This is a terrible time in our world.

That was my city. I don't know how were going to cope with this I hope they find some ways. One of our pundits Chris Matthews has proposed that the heathy male refugees should be used the fight Isis in Syria.

There's some logic to that. They should we be willing to defend their country backed by a responsible group of international soldiers. Let music bring us peace and harmony. Patton and Churchill. In we had to sit down and talk to Stalin. At this point, we have to sit down and talk to Vladimir Putin and to China. Putin is that necessary bastard. Because of course two American presidents named Bush were in extremely tight business relationships with the Saudis.

Read Michael Moore. That same source is spreading a tribal medieval and barbaric perversion of what was an otherwise tolerant religion across the world, and they are funding these extreme views. Muslim friends tell me that Saudi money is pouring into the West to promote their extreme religious views. The paymasters money is in the West. A lot is locked in ownership of companies and hotels.

Jeff: no law school for me That sort of thing. Just a theory I have More of an impression, I guess. A Stingray bike with a banana seat I had one a model. Fun times!

Both teams have been to the semi finals of the European Cup, and Dundee United were harshly done by as Roma bribed the referee with Euros in the second leg. Scottish teams will never get so far again in this tournament because it is all about the money. Dundee is in the news for another reason just now. I can't link. JQ - the sequel to 'Trainspotting' got good reviews. I have still to see it because I missed the fist time when it came out and I want to see it at the cinema.

So just waiting for it to come back to one of the art houses. When I saw Lou Reed, he said how much he enjoyed 'Trainspotting'. If you ever get the chance maybe you have try to see Peter McDougal's TV plays from the seventies, which changed playwriting in the UK for their realism. The parts of Scotland the tourists don't see. I was often in those areas with football teams. Never Show Fear. I was asking my daughter about it and she thought it was brilliant.

The new series of 'Shetland' is great. I enjoyed 'Bosch'. Watch 'Strike' also, Bob. Dunc: is it in Dundee where the two city teams stadia are seperated by a very short distance? Or have I mistaken one Scottish city for another? Days Like This - Van Morrison Don't get me started on the hockey men's and women's.

But plenty of Brookyln Italians say gravy, and Sunday gravy It's a constant argument. But truth is, both are valid. My family said sauce.

But to me, "macaronis and gravy" is just a fun thing to say. This restaurant is in Carrol Gardens or Cobble Hill, depending who you ask. It was an Italian stronghold, to some degree it still is.

Dunc, we've been watching a great 2 season crime show from Scotland called Case Histories. I'm really surprised it wasn't a huge show. You familiar with this show? Hi Dunc - I saw this a few days ago and thought it was great, a good 2. But I also missed some so I need to see it again straight through. Is it well regarded there? I believe they left some unfinished biz that could fuel 3. Am I late on this, like a year? Not my era. Thanks, Mate. JQ:I love all three films, but you're correct about what is the best film.

I always wondered if Bill forsyth's talent should have led to a greater career. Technology, Bill M. Not a clue about it. Hope you can get past the wall to get home, Rockin' Chair. My last 5 played. A salute to America. Away to real football now.

We are back to the monkish scribes of the 12th century who found that because of its multiple sources, the newly emerging English language only had 5 letters to represent up to twenty vowel sounds.

They doubled letters to create more, and invented the final silent e. The function in English, if there is only one consonant before it, is to make the preceding vowel long, rather than short.

So we have cut and cute, pet and Pete, bit and bite, not and note, rat and rate. So those accustomed to English will tend to think a final e is silent. Not in Italian, it isn't! Apparently, at least four years ago, Signor Roberto still had associates in Calabria.

Pete, unfortunately, the trend is towards the Carphone pronounciation. I always naturally used the vowel sound. For me it would be normal to say Carconay, Scorsayzee or Calabraysee for calabrese. Never ask an Italian-North American how to properly say an Italian name Unless they can speak Italian properly, that is. The letter "r" gets rolled a wee bit too much.

The name was Car-Bone here to rhyme with carphone. Like minestrone, and Ennio Morricone. OK, it shows Eddie has Americanized himself. I can justify it, but it jarred. I asked. They pronounce it Car-bone as in carphone. I wonder if the production was influenced by the restaurant. Subject: I knew it. I believe the old lady This makes more sense. And full of shit too. Subject: How to pronounce I needed to know this. See the link I needed to know so googled how to pronounce Martin Scorsese.

If that failed i was gonna ask Garth. I say bullshit. His parents never woulda pronounced Scorsese that way. Rhyming with Calabrese makes the most sense.

I was thinking of setting up something per paypal but I havent. Subject: STOP! I get waked up with John Fogerty roarin' thru' my head. Sometimes I think life is just a rodeo, The trick is to ride, and make it to the bell. There is a place, sweet as you will ever know. Time out od time, for you and no one else Hey lets go, all over the world I'm goin' to Mexico tomorrow No joke. A Republican.

Felony invasion of privacy. Too good. Ya gotta read it Johnny gave me the finger cause i forgot to enter my name. If you can watch The chris hayes show on MSNBC soemhow, it will repeat again later, and is probably n you tube, Sam Zeiff, one of the PArkland kids who spoke to Trppm yeatsrday, and was on TV a lot last night, was just on again with his father. Playing slide on that SG2 is as good as it gets. Charlie Starr the lead singer sings this song as good as any body ever will.

Every year it is taken out of the museum and played. I'd of paid a lot of money to be at that show. Anyone from Jersey looking in? Just a neighborhood bar It;s kinda central Jersey, leaning towards the south. Today's four: Two from Jimmie Lee Robinson. Jimmie was one of the great known great unknowns, known amongst deep blues lovers, and musicians. Born in chicago. Jimmie was a philosopher, a radical of sorts, did a over 80 day fast one time, just drank some liquids, i forget what he was protesting, i think the prison syatem Foreman another master.

Played on some of thee initial electric blues records, and with his cousin elmore James. Was a deputy sheriff in Wellston, one of the worst parts of st louis. This is an amazing record The last few years of his life tommy would perform a setm go back and sit hooked up to his oxygen tank, then do another set later Subject: Black Flies!!!!

Peter just the thought of those dirty little bastards makes me cringe. Outside of Prince Rupert about 20 miles is Dundas Island an area where we gillnet salmon for years the island is about 20 miles long.

There is nothing lives on that island. Up on the island is a VHF radio repeater. When the maintenance guys are heli lifted up there to do maintenance they have to wear complete suits to survive. We fish maybe a mile off the west shore.

We use a repellent called "Musk oil" Without it you can't survive. I have a question here, I may be behind the times. Doing some youtube surfing and listening I came across the band, "Black Berry Smoke". A southern rock, country rock band from AtlantaGeorgia. Have you guys heard them? The lead singer puts me in mind of Tom Petty. Anyway they are doing a concert and a couple of guys from Kentucky Head Hunters are jamming with them.

They sing The Night they drove old Dixie down. You guys need to hear this. It is gawd damn unreal!!! Twenty or thirty minute flight. The pilot had a large gun and a picnic basket and there were a lot of bear prints round the picnic table on the beach. For tourists? Anyway, he said he liked trips with two adults and three kids our party because the plane got over the trees easily he made me sit in the front taking off to trim the plane.

I leave the bear spray. Danko Manuel did plenty of Rr songs, Danko too. Subject: Guns and Music What is the name of your book and where can I get it? I'm interested. I came in just after I guess. Susan looked up wide eyed and said it's a good thing you weren't here a few minutes ago. You probably would have put your foot thru' the TV. I have had these thoughts the last few days and particulary since remarks by Marco Rubio last night.

One young student who obviously knew his stuff asked Rubio about his thoughts on multicartridge clips. He said he had never thought about it. This shows there are too many people making decisions on guns that they know nothing about.

I have hunted for over 25 years with a Parker Hale Super Safari bolt action, an English safari gun. These rifles have a clip that holds 4 rounds. Very few rifles for hunting hold more. A Model 94 Winchester ,Saddle gun holds 7 in the breech.

This was my deer gun I gave to my son. These assault guns have 30 round clips. I have shot a Garran with a 30 round clip of tracers just at drift logs on the beach. The devastation they cause is horrific. Some of these idiots who lobby and insist those guns are necessary need to be hiding in a closet like those children fearing for their lives and see how they feel about having all those guns around. For hunting you should be able to take down your game with a shot, using the right size gun and grain of shot.

A second shot for a wounded animal ok. Just barrages of shots. A lot of deranged young people are stimulated by this. Example, Patty Hearst.

It is crazy. I haven't hunted for a long time. I keep my rifle, and my 12 gage Winchester because we live pretty well in the wilds of BC.

Many of the places we go with our boats and go ashore with our small boats we encounter grizzly bear. We avoid them, but they are unpredictable so you have to be very careful and prudent about protecting yourself. So totally within my Grandfather's life. We need to be armed to the teeth. I'm appalled by so many people who seem to be openly saying their need to own an arsenal outweighs children's death. I mean their was more outrage over American Football players not standing for our national anthem.

Been listening to a lot of one offs of late. Searching out bands, many from the 60s and 70s, who released one fairly good album and then drifted into obscurity. My new book on the Akron Music Scene of the 70s and 80s started appearing in some independent stores in the area yesterday even though it isnt officially released til March 5th. Have to say I've been overwhelmed by the outpouring of interest. It's really gratifying to write about music you love and it be so well received. Also listening to some Blind Faith, have Winwood tickets in a few weeks.

Excited although Ive heard his voice is shot. I was a bit thrown when Rusty released that album as a solo project as the band was the current lineup of Poco. Two of the guys I get, but Jack has I think the 3rd longest tenure in the history of the band. Making him part of Rusty's backing band for ego's sake seemed shitty.

Im surprised to hear Rusty is now trying to pitch it as a Poco album, as at first he was clearly making a distinction that it was his solo effort. The 2nd Amendment was written when the USA faced three potentially predatory colonial neighbours contesting its frontiers: Britain, France and Spain. Add the exaggerated threat of conflict with Native Americans as it expanded westwards.

Put it in perspective. The USA is rare in having no foreign army on its territory since So ? In contrast, most European countries have been threatened or invaded in the last 80 years. The USA has no serious separatist region. No Catalan or Ulster issues. Its main neighbours have no aggressive territorial disputes. Subject: The obvious Some people just are not that bright. When Mueller gets done with Trump all the crazies that support him will want a war against the people who put down their "fair haired boy".

Any one who sees a "need" to own an AR 15 is not playing with a full deck anyway. You can still do splits? At your age? You must be a Gemini. Subject: I'll be damn A woman whose daughter was killed asked this woman who represented the NRA the exact question I posed. How is your right to bare arms more important than my daughter's right to life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness. Her answer was just stupid our guns are trying to protect her right. If you look on the internet here, the guy who invented the AR15 never intended it for commercial sale.

It's purpose was for advantage in war. His family said, although he died some years ago he would be horrified to know how the "American Gun of choice" is being used.

Of course there is countries divided and at war all over this planet, but they are not the same government claiming to be united. Looks like the whole country is going to implode just like the USSR. In the meantime, I set out to work on the gin, pace a nice ring in my carpet, and since I had forty-five minutes to kill, finish assimilating and start asking myself the proper questions. I might even have time to smoke an entire cigarette.

They arrived back at the office twenty-seven minutes late. I was glad to see them. Marcella had changed outfits for her coaching job. Tamla was wearing her standard ball cap, t-shirt and jeans. They both chuckled. Sit down. Tell me what has been going on. Tamla spoke. Well, we thought maybe whoever has been messing with Marcie was probably the guy in the Thunderbird. So when we left here, we drove to the spa, and when we went through the parking lot, sure enough that same car with the tinted glass was already there!

But I know somebody at Hertz and he checked for me and guess what! Jennifer Suraski? I played with it, the way a man with too much booze in his belly will do. Mostly you worry about going nuts. Things get ugly? You run a marathon. I liked that. Third, this Jeremy The Gospel Accordin To John - Kinky Friedman - Under The Double Ego (Vinyl to me to have a few problems.

I think he feels out of control, but for goodreason. A biker bar? What a sweet girl. First, in my haste to please a paying client, I had neglected to check out Marcella Knight. I would soon regret that. Second, I disregarded the proven fact that under the influence of gin, I became bolder than most situations warranted. And third, perhaps as a consequence of the first two mistakes, I forgot to retrieve my gun from Tamla.

A bouncer only slightly smaller than a cement mixer held a hand flat against my chest. Just a word. His shaved head caught what little light there was. It twinkled. I was not in a pleasant mood. Two of his friends appeared behind him.

One of them laughed. You guys call it. Here to see somebody? Your way. Can Jennifer come out to play? Leather Girl? That or we might get ugly. He stood right up and flexed his fingers. Snatch, show me the way. Tables filled with pitchers and glasses of hops bobbed up and down on fat round tables.

Pool balls cracked and sailed. A dusty jukebox played real vinyl. I forget things after a while. I ordered a gin and tonic. Only about half the thirty or so bikers sported colors. The other half sprinkled themselves individually throughout the room, careful not to overdo the eye contact. Snatch came back. We stepped inside. He closed the door behind us. The other two bouncers were already seated.

Marcella Knight sat on the edge of a desk, facing me. Sometimes I lie to myself, just for the amusement. She crossed her legs and smiled. Good of you to come. You must have so many questions. Some of our income would confuse the authorities. It becomes necessary to invest it in other enterprises, like Action Leather Goods.

Marcella Knight was struggling when we met her. She pretended to be horrified. Oh, she continued to accept our financing, naturally. But her objections came to sound more and more like a prelude to blackmail. Well, you met her. Does she seem like the blackmailing type to you?

It became necessary to make her crazy. The right blend of hallucinogenic and programming. But then—Jeremy had to go and screw things up! After all, she proved herself easy to control.
