Now, we all know that in most Christian circles very few crimes escape the BIG BROOM OF CHRISTENDOM when it's time for a whole-house sanitization. The ones left lying about are usually swept under the rug of "justifiable subcultural detritus" and often appear as little more than the blatant crimes against fashion taking up space in the pews. (Can I get a boo-yah on my denim jumper and knee socks, y'all???) Sure, there are the "tactful" grasps at sounding righteous while fishing for gossip ("Just give me all the juicy details so I can pray for her more effectively.") and other various societal sins which provide the "outside world" with fresh comic fodder from within our squeaky-clean, steam-sanitized ranks. But Nike isn't talking about those sorts of crimes. Nike is talking about POLICE PROCEDURALS, and BLOOD and GORE. She's talking about UNSANITIZED CRIME SCENES and MULTIDIMENSIONAL CHARACTERS who, as she puts it, aren't just bridge club members in cop uniforms looking for a novel to inhabit.
I could tell you more, but I'd rather have you drop by Nike's place today and let her know what you think. Check out Nike's blog by clicking on the direct link below. Then, if the mood strikes, go read a book or something. (She's given some great suggestions!)
