A text from my friend, Dianna (the quote is bolded)...

Good morning sugar. A little girl told a newscaster that she would like to keep the coyote prowling Central Park as a pet. He said the coyote is a carnivore. She replied, "So am I." Rock on litte kid! :-)

G. K. Chesterton, has a great quotation that pretty much sums up the Determinist:

"He is in the clean and well-lit prison of one idea: he is sharpened to one painful point."

not screaming and pleading, like the people in his car."

Based on everything I read on wisdom and philosophy, I think Beethoven was right!

Include religion in that!

"...Don't ask us to attend
'Cos we're not all there
Oh don't pretend 'cos I don't care
I don't believe illusions 'cos too much is real
So stop your cheap comment
'Cos we know what we feel

Oh we're so pretty
Oh so pretty
We're vacant
Oh we're so pretty
Oh so pretty
Vacant..." - Johnny Rotten

Do you have point? Or are we supposed to be mind readers?
