When I was little, I loved watching Murder She Wrote. Well…okay, I mostly loved the incongruously peppy theme song. Those of you too young to have ever heard it, give it a listen and try to tell me it’s not a bop.
(That’s right. The video’s a two-hour loop. You’ll thank me later.)
What I never noticed, at least at the time, was just how many people wound up dead when fictional detective Jessica Fletcher was around. The woman is a dark harbinger. And she’s not the only one.
