Question, is there a trope for a character that rejects a particular angle of activism? J.B. is a very strong, independent woman, but she\'s always been quick to reject and even contradict hardcore feminists who try to get her to help spread their \"I don\'t need any man\" type message, often preferring to reminisce about the joy of her life with her late husband and how their relationship helped make her what she is today.

It's stated at least twice on this page that Cabot Cove's murder rate is 86 times higher than any real city. How was this calculated? Roughly five episodes per season took place in Cabot Cove, and the local population was 3560. How is 5/3560 per year equal to 86/1000 per year?

Even if we allow for two murders per episode, I get a total rate of 280 per 100,000 per year, or if you prefer, 2.8 per 1000 per year. Now, that's outrageously high (more than 10 times the homicide rate of 1990s L.A., for instance) but it's nowhere near 86 per 1000.

Type the word in the image. This goes away if you get known.

How well does it match the trope?
