Dexter: Pathos & Ethos of the Super Hero – Part 1Elliottdexter_header

Mon, 21 Feb 2011 11:54:04 +0000

Not long ago, while winding down a day with an episode of Dexter, my betrothed turned to me and asked if I thought that Dexter’s actions are acceptable.  Vis-à-vis, is the killing of one murderer by another murderer a morally just outcome? At first my thinking in the discussion that followed revolved around the real […](image)

It can be extremely difficult to do, even being aware of it, because […](image)

I’m from the school of thought where one’s art is better informed and developed by sources outside of art, even as I attempt to tune out most news stories that while interesting, don’t really add to my knowledge of the world–at least in a practical sense.
