patrick, regarding tv violence, my neices have never been desensitized to violence, having never seen it, in any form. when they were visiting i brought out a video tape of disney's jungle book. didnt work, for they were terrified, utterly wasted them. that scene where the four vultures are hassling some creature, they couldnt handle that. im sure this bodes ill for these kids. spike
