Why are murder mysteries very popular among those who would never commit so violent an act?

For those that would commit it, when you think constantly about something, every minute of every day, you tend to not want to read about it?

Um....because people like solving crime mysteries, not creating them? There is a reason Sir Arthur Conan Doyle didn't call his stories "The Adventures of Professor Moriarty" and tell the stories from his perspective!

My wife loves murder mysteries. I just wish she wouldn't take down notes while she watches them.

Some of the video violence nowadays is so gratuitous that I wonder whether homicide detectives actually have to put up with such choreographed intensity on the job. Otherwise, actually getting attacked, the smell of death and eventual career burnout cannot be depicted on the screen.

Darn! I was hoping you were going to tell me that the RS232 port was coming back. There is still a world of industry using it in old systems.
