Thanks to all who replied to my stupidity. This list is the greatest!
I use rm -r all the time, for it's proper use, and should have known
better than to expect it to work the way I did. The find line, of course,
is the proper way to do this. I probably just need to be drinking
something with more caffeine in it ;-)

Thanks again to all,
