The Boiling Point

Posted Wednesday, April 8, 2009

Share on Facebook Share Share on Twitter Tweet

When Clevelander Mansfield Frazier was repeatedly passed over for promotion forty years ago, he seethed. His Browning rifle, he writes for The Daily Beast, became his best friend. He had a rooftop and targets picked out. But unlike some recent shooters in Binghamton, Pittsburgh, and Cleveland, Frazier stopped just short of exacting revenge. This recent spate of mass shootings raises the question why some can't control the rage inside. Wednesday morning at 9 we'll talk about what happens when people approach their boiling points.

Yet another test…

I thought this morning’s program was an especially amazing example of the importance of qualitatively and quantitatively raising the significance of many of these things to the most piebald but also thoroughly chromatically transparent level.
