    pencilpaper Let's judge R. Kelly (for his music)

    FIVE YEARS have passed since R&B superstar R. Kelly was indicted on 21 counts of child pornography charges, and he has yet to go to trial — until now.
    That's right ladies and gentleman of the, err, jury. His appearance Thursday night at Philips Arena has given us reason to hold court, and we've found him guilty on at least seven counts — musically, that is.



    • Having an undeniable way with melody. How else could you explain his ability to make people sing such inane things as "You remind me of my Jeep" (from "You Remind Me of Something") — as if it's a flowery compliment, no less?
    At the same time there's no denying the beauty and magic in such Kelly creations as "Step in the Name of Love" or, sigh, the once-inescapable "I Believe I Can Fly."
    Even the way-less-controversial, nine-time Grammy winner Alicia Keys played from Kelly's catalog during her recent stop at a private concert for radio station V-103.
    "He's one of the best musical talents of our time," Keys said. "And as a songwriter, he is absolutely one of the best. His melodies! Whoa — his melodies are some of the most insane I've ever heard. Like, on the real songs he does — when he's really singing — like 'Half On A Baby,' 'I Believe I Can Fly,' 'Bump 'N Grind'.


    • Being able to reinvent himself, at the least in name. How many different things has Robert Sylvester Kelly called himself over the course of his seven solo albums?
    There's "R," "The R," "The Pied Piper of R&B," "The King of R&B," "Rob," "Kells"...
    • Being as good with an assist as Pippen was to Jordan. Consider the heft he lent as a songwriter and/or featured guest to R&B pin-ups B5 ("Bump, Bump, Bump"), fellow teen favorite Bow Wow ("I'm a Flirt") and Michael Jackson ("You Are Not Alone").
    • Being a career coach. If Kelly hadn't stepped in and helped Ron Isley reimagine himself as the hipper Mr. Biggs, do you think Isley would still be as relevant to contemporary R&B?
    • Having the potential to be an opera star. That infamous back and forth between him and Isley on Kelly Price's remix of "Friend of Mine" hinted at that way back in 1998. And every now and then — often to lesser effect — he dusts off that technique.


    • Being a gifted soap opera creator. Four words: "Trapped in the Closet."
    • Being an expert linguist. He has introduced a new phrase for intimacy — "Half on a Baby" — and given new meaning to the words 'ignition' and, yes, 'Jeep.'
    ? THE 411: R. Kelly with Keyshia Cole, Ne-Yo and J Holiday. $47-$102.

    7:30 p.m. Thursday at Philips Arena, One Philips Drive, Atlanta. 404-249-6400 or www.ticketmaster.com

    Psychopaths have a Hidden Content and grossly inflated view of their own Hidden Content and importance, a truly astounding egocentricity and sense of entitlement, and see themselves as the center of the universe, justified in living according to their own rules.

    Psychopaths show a stunning lack of concern for the effects their actions have on others, no matter how devastating these might be. They may appear completely forthright about the matter, calmly stating that they have no sense of guilt, are not sorry for the ensuing pain, and that there is no reason now to be concerned.

    Many of the characteristics displayed by psychopaths are closely associated with a profound lack of empathy and inability to construct a mental and emotional "facsimile" of another person.

    Psychopaths seem to suffer a kind of emotional poverty that limits the range and depth of their feelings. At times they appear to be cold and unemotional while nevertheless being prone to dramatic, shallow, and short-lived displays of feeling.
    Obligations and commitments mean nothing to psychopaths.

    But here is the crux: Psychopaths don't feel they have psychological or emotional problems, and they see no reason to change their behavior to conform with societal standards they do not agree with.
