Hell On Wheels

 Psychpathic Pasttimes

I watched my first, and probably last, episode of AMC's Hell On Wheels, which is sort of a drama based on the transcontinental railroad, aspiring to the vast sweep of Lonesome Dove, but lacking all charm.

I think it is a capital notion that there is so much of our media time devoted to the portrayal of psychopaths.

I mean, Psycopaths, the good ones as well as the bad ones,  are sort of the Poster Boys of the Modern Age, say 1914 to the present...

Hannibal Lecter was big for quite a time, but new killers sweep clean, and we are renewed in the blood of the tormented.

Crazy people...
