An exquisitely beautiful--and painful--column by Charles Blow on being defeated by bullying, and on the soulful connections that make us persist in the face of it. "So, Mama, when you read this, I want you to sing."

Yeah, he's got this great line in another essay: "Political illiteracy has cornered the market on populist rage, providing a political bonus for those who are responsible for massive levels of inequality, poverty, and sundry other hardships."

I agree, it is quite myopic, and most likely hypocritical, as I'm sure there are a host of students partaking in the same activities they're just more savvy at hiding it/controlling their privacy settings. But I think it's interesting for what it says about American culture right now. It amazes me this need to over-share in the media/popular culture and the younger students have grown up with this assaulting them at every angle. Yet, when various "scandals" break on our 24-hr news channels, Puritanical America covers its mouth coyly in shock and disdain.

Epilepsy patients with electrodes in their amygdalas are not afraid of Shaq, Mother Theresa, Brad Pitt, or the leaning tower of Pisa, but get excited about bunnies, arachnids, tigers, and raptors. More technically speaking: in the experimental population of 41 patients who were tested, neurons that have been implicated with mediating fear and in processing "rewarding or punishing" stimuli, fired "more frequently and, on average, more strongly" in response to images of animals than to images of people or buildings. This "neuronal response preference" is not shared by monkeys that have been given similar tests: their neurons respond to both the faces of people and other monkeys. Nature Neuroscience is subscription only, but here's the citation link:
