Geraldine and Geraldine,
As an American who moved to England six years ago thinking, "Isn't it great to live in a place where guns are banned, where no one's citing the right to bear arms, etc.?," I appreciated your posts. Re censorship, isn't what you're/we're saying is that some rap music is equivalent to hate speech and should be censored on those grounds? That the limit to freedom of speech comes when speech incites violence?
On my birthday, I think I'll take a day off from news--if that's possible anymore--
