About the author:
Barbara Barnett is co-executive editor of Blogcritics, an Internet magazine of pop culture, politics and more owned by Technorati Media. Always a pop-culture geek, Barnett was raised on a steady diet of TV (and TV dinners), but she always found her way to TV’s antiheroes and misunderstood champions, whether on TV, in the movies or in literature, including Ã¢Å“House, M.D.Ã¢
Barnett has had an eclectic career. With an undergraduate degree in biology and minors in chemistry and English, she pursued a Ph.D. in Public Policy Analysis after spending a few years working in the chemical and pharmaceutical industries. After many years as a public affairs consultant, Barbara made a sharp left turn in her career path, becoming a Jewish educator, but the writer in her never took a back seat, creating several noted and award-winning publications along the way. She is a polished and popular speaker on such diverse topics as liturgy, being a Ã¢Å“good person,Ã¢ religious pluralism, politics, the environment and the nature of medicine and pop culture…and, of course House, M.D.
