"Information wants to be free."  John Perry Barlow.

As a deadHead, I have to admit, I liked the idea 
of taping concerts dead concerts, but as a musician, I really liked the 
idea that they explicitly permitted it.  Unfortunately, 
since Captain Trips now has an extra field in his database to 
determine his age, that just ain't happening.  My apologies 
to deadHeads everywhere.

Hair?  What hair?

Whoa, there, pardner.  First of all, the word you're looking for is
not "tact", but rather "tack".  I'd encourage you to take your own
Freudian-slipping advice, and increase the gain on your tactometer: no
reason to drag the GD into this, or to lump those who listen to their
music together with all liars, cheats, and thieves.  Yes, that's it,
put the measuring tape down slowly and then back away; no hair length
measurements will be taken today.
