The Kindness of Strangers, the title of which is presumably a play on the early Bad Seeds song "Stranger than Kindness"... - more likely both are references to the famous last line of A Streetcar Named Desire: "I have always depended on the kindness of strangers", which Cave would certainly have been aware of. WP articles shouldn't include unsourced speculation. --Calair 14:58, 1 June 2007 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Moron Tabernacle Choir[edit]

Could we please get consensus on the correct Choir?

Moron Tabernacle Choir

Mormon Tabernacle Choir

Note Cave, Ellis and Graney's participation in the former. Also the reference to Murder Ballads.

I noticed someone incorrectly reverted an edit citing vandalism. No, it's not.

Death count[edit]

The article states a death count of 64. I believe the correct number is 65, broken down like this:

  1. 4 (three children and wife)
  2. 2 (bartender and Billy Dilly)
  3. 1 (Henry Lee)
  4. 1 (the "lovely creature")
  5. 1 (Elisa Day)
  6. 23 (3 mentioned by name + 20 children) + 1 dog (not killed by Lottie). Notice the article says "over 25" - also incorrect.
  7. 1 (Mary Bellows)
  8. 20 (miners)
  9. 12 (townspeople, all mentioned by name)
  10. 0

This comes to a sum total of 65 (+ 1 poor dog). Unless anyone objects to this I will change it.
