An Open Letter to KC Artist DJG About “Inception”

Photo above by DJG (www.djgdesign.com). “Deer” DJG*: Remember two years ago when The Dark Knight came out and we called it The Dork Newt?  We thought it was a snoozer, and we suspected the film critics were raving simply because the film featured the recently deceased Heath Ledger.  Although I have generally liked Christopher Nolan’s...
