Several reports and second-hand/heresay observations are saying that last night’s Aurora shooter, James Holmes, had his hair dyed red and that he was telling the cops that he was the Joker. So if this is true, Holmes didn’t murder with sincerity? He did it ironically, as a perverse performance-art piece? An hour ago I heard a young woman who was in the theatre when the shooting started tell an MSNBC interviewer everything she saw, heard and felt, and she didn’t mention the guy’s appearance at all.
