Subject: RE: News story on Bob Brozman allegations
I don't know whether Guest at 4:24 pm is "Joanie" or someone else, so am not sure if their post is intended as a reply to mine or not, but either way:

I've listened to the track* and can't see how it tells us much of anything one way or another. Certainly NOTHING with regard to child abuse. It seems to be a person's meditation on death, and it's generalised enough that listeners can make it mean just about anything they want to. Impending suicide? Maybe. But not necessarily. We-were-born-to-die is one of the great poetic tropes, and mortality has been a theme throughout centuries of literature and song. In fact these lines could suggest fear of heart attack -

I feel funny in my chest
My friends are telling me to take more rest

And OK, it shows a devil's mask. So what? (There's your Satanism, Jack.)

This stuff is not "evidence". It's anonymous rumour and vague interpretation. I can only repeat what I wrote above:

I'm not saying it didn't happen, I'm saying that it will take more than trial-by-internet/gossip to convince me that I have enough facts to really form a judgment on this man.
