Three others were wounded in the shooting. A fifth person was killed when the suspect attempted to steal a car to flee the scene, police say. The suspect was caught about a mile from the hotel."

Being born Jewish & raised Catholic I knew as soon as I heard I was guilty of what ever it was that happened & I never even met the guy of really cared for his style that much but hey, when there's a car stolen across town I just sit there waiting for the cops who know I had something to do with. Hell I'm still waiting to find out what they're going to do to me when they realize I was connected with the loss of the dinosaurs. Thanks Gern, I was hoping to add to the weight that the world has already dumped on me I just can't get enough of it. Barry, who just can't beat a good guilt trip with a stick.

This gets my vote as the most ridiculous thread of the year. If I can offer a totally detached view — never having been able to stand the Beatles and not really giving a happy damn about John Lennon or George Harrison as musicians — I think we can all feel bad for other humans who get hurt or killed, but I'm certainly not going to take any guilt for it. If it's part of some predestined plan (I was raised around a lot of Presbyterians), my only beef is that it didn't happen before the Beatles messed up a lot of great old rock'n'roll tunes and then sold all that namby-pamby, gutless crap they wrote to a whole generation who didn't know any better.

Guilt?

Here is my .02. gern has made a really brainless comment. I think its rediculous to say "I am responsible for the acts of another person who I don't know never did know and would probably never meet". I'd never supoport this line of thinking. I'd never shoulder anothers responsibility for heinous crime and anyone who tells me I must had better be a better scrapper then i am by God.

I agree we should cut Gern a little slack, but at the same time I, nor anyone else I personally know, caused GH any harm.

There is an ever-increasing tendency to blame the world's problems on everyone except the "fuck-ups" who cause the afore-mentioned problem. Wanna blame someone? Blame the perpetrator...and no-one else. Certainly not GH for being reasonably successful.

Such metaphors! I love it.

As everybody looks for somebody to blame, the idea of collective, even universal guilt is certainly attractive. But it is a very, very bad path to start down. I generally love my students, but the idea of personal responsibility is as foreign to them as the moons of Neptune. "Victim of society" is a phrase often used by many adult caregivers. And of course there's some truth to it, but it is overwhelmingly overshadowed by the decision that one person makes at one point in time, and the consequences that come afterward. If the idea of personal responsibility does not come back into style, it will be time to find a place to live with no address.

This incident hits home because I was caught up in the orginal Beatlemania in '63 and though I was too young to go to concerts, I was old enough to idolize this man and his companions. I feel the same way about the attack on Harrison as I felt about the attack on JKF all those years ago (no pun intended). Why would anyone want to harm him? This is George Harrison here! A man who never hurt anyone and has contributed so much to music. To me, he is still the 'Quiet Beatle' as he was called back then, and although Beatlemania is a thing of the past, I still hold this man in high regard. To suggest that I had anything to do with the attack on him or Lennon is just as absurd as if it were suggested that I contributed as a 10year old to the attack on Kennedy also. If anyone wants to feel responsible for it, feel free, but don't suggest that I would share in that. I would have willingly put myself between him and the knife if I could have.

(Haven't read all the posts) I refuse to be whitewashed with the brush of responsibility for the actions of madmen!! I am in no way responsible. I agree about the danger of idolitry, though. Not healthy for the adorer or the adored. But that is one thing I like about the people here at the mudcat. Here I am conversing with folks who are great recording "stars", yet we are person to person, without the relationship of adored and adorer. It is, rather, a mutual respect.

The man who did this was unhinged. He was loose in the community because of the "care in the community" policy and lack of mental health funds and because no-one has corrected a lacuna in law which prevents schizophrenics being detained for treatment or prevention.

All 3 things can be squarely blamed on Margaret Thatcher.

I've been really surprised by the intensity of the reaction to Gern's post. Sure, I don't agree with it. So? There are things posted in other threads I don't agree with, things many of us don't agree with. However, this particular post seems to have touched a nerve and people have been prodded into responding. Some are changing the topic, introducing straw men to argue against, to make points, valid as they may be, about things Gern didn't really say. What I find a little disapponting is that some of the people being the harshest judges are normally understanding of points of view that are different from their own hard-won opinions. For some reason, this idea of social guilt has struck more sparks of hostility than any threads I have ever followed before.

Reasonable people have held what seem to me to be generally similar opinions. The idea comes up whenever a celebrity is assassinated. Something similar came up when civil rights activists began talking about US society as being oppressive of minorities. There are also people who see our society as a whole benefitting from the exploitation of other countries. Gern expressed his/her idea crudely but I'll bet he was surprised at what his mea culpable message sparked. I know, I have been.

Sourdough, I don't think it is surprising to see those reactions. It's like being falsely accused. There is hardly anything more hurtful or alarming to a person to be accused of something they haven't done.

Now, as to the tone of some of the posts: I guess some people find it difficult to control "outbursts". What I mean is that I frequently feel strongly about something, but try hard to edit and reread my posts before submitting to make sure I am being succinct without unnecessary rudeness (name calling) or anything else that may detract from the post. I think it is easy enough to express disagreement or even outrage without cussing or namecalling.

But when I see people do that inposts, I can see the emotion and look beyond it. That's just the way people are, so why get upset? Then there are some posts that are so rude, that I have responded with reprimand. (Gargoyle Hunter)

The most surprising thing to me is that anyone would be surprised at people's reaction to this thread!!

I'm no authority on UK law (and I know RB's tongue was, at least partially, in his cheek), but

(a) isn't this "lacuna in law which prevents schizophrenics being detained for treatment or prevention" simply JUSTICE? That is, we don't lock up a man because of what he is, only for what he does and

(b) isn't there a process called sectioning which does permit a schizophrenic to be locked up before he does something?

As a Glasgow man, this entire convoluted and confusing thread and the intuative reasoning of Richard Bridge has convinced me that Margaret Thatcher is definitely the sole perpetrator of this and a thousand other crimes against humanity. The death penalty in Britain should be temporarily repealed, off with the old bag, and then the ban can be reinstated. Either that or break into her house and stab her!

There are no longer "dancers," the possessed. The cleavage of men into actor and spectators is the central fact of our time. We are obsessed with heroes who live for us and whom we punish. If all the radios and televisions were deprived of their sources of power, all books and paintings burned tomorrow, all shows and cinemas closed, all the arts of vicarious existence...

We are content with the "given" in sensation's quest. We have been metamorphosized from a mad body dancing on hillsides to a pair of eyes staring in the dark.

We are at a place where insanity rules. I only hope George is tending his garden in the sky and singing harmony with John and happy and contented and fulfilled with his higher existence. Because things really are screwed up here.I loved and respected George and the rest of them and cannot comprehend how anyone can resurrect such a nonsensical thread. I reitterate my original point Insanity Rules!

Regards.

Sidewinder.
