My IF this week requires a little explanation. It is based on a Doug Burr song about a Chief of police informing a young mother that her child tested positive for a gene only found in killers. The song throws a lot of questions out on the table centered around genetic moral determinism. It is actually a pretty sad but thankfully with the rest of the album, specifically “You’ve Been a Suspect All Your Life”, Burr ultimately refutes this genetic determinism as a diagnosis that is way too early in coming.
