My property taxes just went up. Is that mortgage noir?
My homeowner's insurance just went up. Is that insurance noir?
I think labeling everyone's true-life misfortune or violence done to them as
noir is misusing the term. Noir isn't a way of life...it's a handy --
albeit contextually malleable -- label for entertainment vehicles (books,
film, et al). However, I'm not going to be the one to start another label
war or try and/or define, as I seem them, the boundaries between reality and
Mortgage noir. Insurance noir. So be it.
Might make paying bills this month more fun, if nothing else.
