First I'll say something about Marilyn Manson article: I found it better written than I expected. He made a lot of points I agree with. I agreed when he said that people are not getting more violent, there is just more coverage on TV. Also, I liked his pacifist message about war coverage and how violence can't be solely blamed on the media.

I disagree that deviating from the mainstream to the extent of Marilyn Manson is a positive attribute. People point fingers at him for a reason: killers and sociopaths are more likely to be not as well integrated in society and 'outsiders.' It's a fact. Also, he made a lot of good points, which were weakened by his insistence on calling everyone 'morons', 'ignorant', etc. Calling names helps no one. Also, I don't think people can entirely be blamed for their fascination of serial killers. It's so outside the norm and death is part of all our lives, after all.

Great job on the essay. Do you think that their rampage was part of the televised violent culture we live in or do you think it was something deeper? I would elaborate that point. :)
