"Bad decisions, moral weaknesses, or simply broken psyches"? Sound like classic "tragic flaws" to me.... And I DO think that classic tragedy is also very much about doom. Besides,I was not arguing that Lehane's description of noir was the final word; I thought of it as another piece of the puzzle.

   in my opinion the best examples (and most prevalent) of
  noir involve the protagonist's bad decisions, moral weaknesses, or
  simply broken psyches than the whims of fate.
