Some of you may be scratching your heads about the phrase
> active evil intent
in my post. This use of the word "active" can be found in William
Faulkner's novels on the Snopes family. The word "active" is supplied
for the word "actual" by one of Faulkner's characters but I have taken
it over because it has somewhat of a different meaning and makes my
point more clearly than "actual" would. I don't remember which of
Faulkner's characters used this word in this manner. Can someone help
me out with this?

This is off topic so better answer off list.
