Interesting article; but, as it also points out, the RECORD doesn't  
necessarily tell the whole story, since those with bad/evil images are  
the ones who need to make PUBLIC their good deeds in order to attempt  
to "fix" things, much as the philandering spouse who unexpectedly  
brings home roses for his wife is often an indication of his having  
done her wrong. Guilt creates all sorts of "good deed doers"  
attempting to balance the scales of justice. IMHO!
