Much as I love Dexter, the charming serial killer on the TV show with the same name, I was skeptical when I was asked to read an advance copy of a book of essays by philosophers. Sure, I had edited my own book of essays about Dexter, but that was different – the contributors were psychologists.
[Bella’s introduction: I haven’t been very good at keeping up with the “Liars and Their Lies” section of this blog. I’d like to think, though, that I’m back with a bang with this guest post by Charles F. Bond, Jr., who for decades has been one of the leading researchers in the psychology of deceiving and detecting deceit. I really enjoyed this contribution and I hope you will, too.]
A post I wrote about the top 10 myths about single people has been featured since this morning at the top of the Living page at the Huffington Post. There are already 148 comments, which I have not even started reading yet. Just wanted to let you know in case you want to join the discussion. (You probably already know about the myths.) You can find the post here.
I just watched an episode of the TV show, Chicago Code. I wasn’t finding it all that interesting and should have just turned it off, but I got the impression that the lead character was a single woman, and she was in a high-powered position. So I thought I’d keep watching to see how she was portrayed. Jennifer Beals plays Teresa Colvin, who is the Superintendent of Police in tough, gritty Chicago. Not bad.
