2008 Dilettante named after video game violence researcher

Although this article has been published for about a month now, it doesn't seem to have made the rounds in the GTA community yet. It's been in the back of most of our minds, but we never cared to search - what the heck is a Karin Dilettante? Our sleepless nights are over, thanks to the Chronicle of Higher Education.
The Karin Dilettante, Liberty City's favorite hybrid, takes its name from Karen Dill, an "associate professor of psychology at Lenoir-Rhyne College" who spent the latter part of the 1990's researching video games and their link to aggression and violence.
Ms. Dill says she couldn't believe that Rockstar Games, the maker of Grand Theft Auto, had taken the trouble to name a car for her: "I was kind of like, whoa, they actually do care about video game research." ...
She was just relieved she wasn't a prostitute.
Rockstar Games hasn't commented on the connection, but it seems like too much of a coincidence to not be one of Rockstar's sly tricks and jabs at its critics.
