I’m sure it comes as no surprise that I’m a total horror junkie. It may come as a surprise that I, a New Yorker, love pure-country girl Gretchen Wilson and watch Love Actually (hey, it has Rick from The Walking Dead!) every Christmas, but more on that another time.

Yes. Man is a savage species. See, I ended the suspense right there. I could end the blog post too now, but that would leave a more important thing unsaid. I’ll say that in a minute, but before I do, let’s make sure we’ve got this straight—human beings are capable of unimaginably evil acts. One [...]
