We’re still neck-deep in the pandemic but at least the election is over. I’m trying to get back in a groove and form good habits – and kick bad ones. The best strategy I’ve found so far? Awareness.  Working hard to eliminate thoughtless habits frees up much more time for deliberate action.

OK, let’s get to it this week.

Here are 3 crime fiction links, 2 quotes, and 1 question for this week:





Two quotes from film noir classics:

  • “I never confuse business with sentiment. Unless it’s extremely profitable, of course.” Clifton Webb in The Dark Corner (1946).
  • “I want him to be fully conscious. I don’t like to shoot a corpse. I want to see the expression on his face when he knows it’s coming.” Raymond Burr in His Kind of Woman (1951).




Until next Thursday, happy reading,
