Well, have you read the her description of herself on her profile?
'. .I am a nurse, a mother, a BITCH, and a lover. .'
'. . .I have love Peter Gabriel for many years & think he is a genius. I would like to meet him & perhaps MARRY him. . .'
Well, I don't know. . . Doesn't sound very believable or trust-worthy. And well, this thread is just ridiculous, I'm sorry, but it IS.

Progressive Jen has made a valid point. May I continue?
Stephen King wrote a story called "Rage," about school-shootings long BEFORE there was Columbine. One reader acted the story out, by bringing a gun to school and using it. The news reported this. Much less was said about the other 100 thousand (estimated) readers, who did NOT act out the story.
I was one of those readers.
More examples can be found. Charles Manson found a reason to kill in listening to the Beatles' "Helter Skelter". How many other people listened to that song? I do not know, but it must be thousands of listeners. Other than Manson, have any of those other listeners decided to kill people? I think not.
I cannot think of anything in UP to justify violence. In fact, only two PBG songs come to mind that might encourage violence: "Intruder" and "No Self Control." In both cases, Peter sings in the role of a violent person.
SO, in principle, someone might use the first song to justify burglary, and the second to justify child/spouse abuse. But my point above remains relevant: many of US have listened to these songs. Did they make US act out the songs?
I certainly did not. Neither did those Lunatics I know.
