Regarding school shootings, an interesting read

A Jigsaw of School Shootings by someone whom I've seen blogging under the name yetimonk offers an interesting summary of some of the root causes of these terrible events and offers up a summarization of possible preventative measures. Hint: we really need to address the problem of bullying, which as the author rightly notes is something that would never be tolerated in most work environments. Another hint: the usual squawking about censoring lyrics, videogame content, ad nauseum does absolutely nothing to address the problem. Check out the presentation - it is based on solid social psychological theory and research, and offers plenty of food for thought.
