Then, just as the media was telling us what fools we all were for doubting the "frumpy" woman's talent, they act completely SHOCKED by the "clean cut" image of the suspected "Craig's List Killer". HUH? Isn't this the same dumb mistake in reverse? Last time I checked, murderers didn't have a dress code.
It seems that the media is completely flabbergasted by a concept that Mom's have always known and passed along to their children : DON'T JUDGE A BOOK BY IT'S COVER. It's pretty basic. If you don't bother to look past someone's physical appearance, you could be missing out on someone really wonderful- or putting yourself in harm's way.
Should we really be "thinking with our eyes"?
