People are going to get emotional about Paul and his well-being, most people here identify very strongly with his music, musical heritage and a lot of his values and deeds.
Perhaps it is time to take a deep breath, now that the shock waves have worn off, but when the media gives 1,000 times more attentiion to this as it does to Paul's music in the 90's and this century - it begins to wear on you. (at least me

Saying he will fight them in court is NOT an admission that the charges are - therefore legit - it is a statement that he prefers to make his points where they keep score in the legal field - court.
