the devil's in the details.

n-tv pet peeve: the ever returning shot of an expert sitting at his or her desk leafing through books to give space and time for voice-overs.

the lawyers always leaf through commentaries of areas of law that aren't even closely connected to the question at hand.
the worst i've ever seen, however, was a psychologist being interviewed on pedophilia this week, leafing through - how i wish i was kidding - the first edition hardcover of rainald goetz's outrageously good novel "irre".

the devil is in the details, people. the devil is in the details.
