I just read a piece in the Wall Street Journal about how the Musicians Union has started an initiative called Zero dB which protests the practice of "music torture".  Ironically, I have much of this music on my ipod and run to it.  Of course being a hard core marathon runner I am a big believer in the effectivness of torture. Hmmmm.
