the 8th graders will be stoked if you can teach them how to make Beats. i suggest garageband if you have macs because it's free. if not, try Reaper because it's free to try (paid license required after x days). also you'll want to load a VSTi for samples, and you can get sample content all over the web although it's far more fun to record your own sounds for making rhythms.

Just like anyone in America can become a preacher. While more traditional religious approaches may include a more scholarly approach to understanding one's professed religion, we can tell by the zillions of self-taught American preachers that zealous bigots with big voices are the religious figures who make the news, either by blaming hurricanes on God's anger at gay marriage (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hurricane_Katrina_as_divine_retribution) or by humping preachers in motels without discretion (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Jimmy_Swaggart). I suspect radicalized elements of the Islamic faith are no different, and engage in all kinds of sin, just like their Protestant brothers.

Byte your tongue.
