Mike The Dead Murderer

Mike Pogue - The Dead Murderer

Mike Greenberg, Express-News, 12/19/98: The deaths of Mark Horner and Mike Pogue were terrible, shattering, impossible to reconcile with our aspirations for beauty, nobility, grandeur, coherence. That, we want to think, is not who we are. But yes, it is. We cannot live without an art that lifts us above and beyond the pool of blood on the floor, the warm gun on the car seat. We also need an art that doesn't flinch or gloss or evade, an art of ordinary lives and places, an art with its feet on the ground."
