“Perhaps this is the purpose of detective investigations, real and fictional -- to transform sensation, horror and grief into a puzzle, and then to solve the puzzle, to make it go away. 'The detective story,' observed Raymond Chandler in 1949, 'is a tragedy with a happy ending.' A storybook detective starts by confronting us with a murder and ends by absolving us of it. He clears us of guilt. He relieves us of uncertainty. He removes us from the presence of death.”
Kate Summerscale, The Suspicions of Mr. Whicher

The "end of days" fantasy was even more infuriating.”
Dave Cullen, Columbine

It sounds simple, but our presuppositions are sometimes hidden in a way that makes them hard to uncover and recognize.”
J Warner Wallace
