Alice Bolin: The Ethical Dilemma of Highbrow True Crime (Vulture)
The “true-crime boom” of the mid- to late 2010s is a strange pop-culture phenomenon, given that it is not so much a new type of programming as an acknowledgement of a centuries-long obsession: People love true stories about murder and other brands of brutality and grift, and they have gorged on them particularly since the beginning of modern journalism.

Spend enough time with these questions and you end up feeling like Augustine, who wrote of God and heavenly creatures that "they neither are nor are not in existence."

Or almost. Looking back at that quote, I realize I have it backward. It's God, in Augustine's formulation, who is entirely in existence. (Of course it is.) It's what isn't God — our world, our rooms, our memories, our faces — that both is there and also is not. What's real and also not? A dream, right? Augustine isn't saying that God is like a dream we're having. He's saying the opposite. He's saying we're the dream, not the dreamer. He's talking about us.

They beg her to return them to their high school or wedding or first triathlon weight, the one that will bring back their former life.

> And then Lenham must explain that these dreams are a trap. Because there is no magical cure. There is no time machine. There is only the revolutionary act of being fat and happy in a world that tells you that’s impossible.

> “We all have to do our best with the body that we have,” she says. “And leave everyone else’s alone.”
