Good morning, I'm Steve Inskeep. For a while yesterday, the most viewed story on npr.org was about "Buffy the Vampire Slayer." Correspondent Jamie Tarabay told us the TV character kept her sane in Baghdad. This may not surprise people at Ursinus College, where Professor Lynne Edwards teaches a course on Buffy. She edits an online journal of undergraduate research into the canceled show. One study says Buffy raises eternal questions of good and evil. You're listening to MORNING EDITION.
