P.S. To all and the person who e-mailed me: I know about the Heilengenstadt (sp?) Testament, and I know there is evidence that Beethoven wasn't really a misanthrope. He occasionally acted like one, from what I've read, and I'm playing on a common impression (if a misperception) of him. I'm not a true misanthrope either, but I sometimes feel and/or act like one. It's all part of the humor. Ha ha ha.
