    FIELDS: Changing how we think

    We mourn, we weep, we wonder why. How could such things happen? Smart phones and online libraries constantly feed us information, but we don't get any wiser. We blame others for what goes wrong and for what we don't fully understand. Pundits argue and provoke, pretending to seek wisdom from the dialectic, but they're merely in love with the sound of their own voices. Jeremiahs predict the worst, Pollyannas foresee a rosy future and the ostrich buries his head in the sand (where insights as wise as any other may lurk).

    Culture Briefs

    "Over at Salon, the headline for a Sarah Hepola essay says that the early '00s grim metal song 'Bodies' by Drowning Pool had its 'encore' in Jared Loughner's murder spree, because he seems to have liked the song — his 'favorite' YouTube video being one that featured the tune, which because of its grinding unpleasantness has also been used by the army to torture and unnerve people," writes Brian Doherty at the Reason blog Hit & Run.
