I. An Angry Little Town

Soon after the snows of 1977 began to thaw, the residents of Greenfield, Massachusetts, received a strange questionnaire in the mail. “Try to recall the number of times you became annoyed and/or angry during the past week,” the survey instructed. “Describe the most angry of these experiences.” One woman knew her answer: Recently, her husband had bought a new car. Then he had driven it to his mistress’s house so she could admire the purchase. When the wife found out, she was livid. Furious. Her rage felt like an eruption she couldn’t control.

The survey was interested in the particulars of respondents’ anger. In its 14 pages, it sought an almost voyeuristic level of detail. It asked the woman to describe the stages of her fury, which words she had shouted, whether punches had been thrown. “In becoming angry, did you wish to get back at, or gain revenge?” the survey inquired. Afterward, did you feel “triumphant, confident and dominant” or “ashamed, embarrassed and guilty”? There were also questions for people like her husband, who had been on the receiving end: “Did the other person’s anger come as a surprise to you, or did you expect that it would occur?”

E. coli outbreaks point to lagging implementation of landmark law.

November 30, 2018 | The emptied-out produce shelves greeting consumers at grocery stores after the recent romaine lettuce E. coli outbreak show just how much work lies ahead to modernize the nation's food safety laws.

In retrospect, passing a landmark regulatory overhaul eight years ago was the easy part. That law, the Food Safety Modernization Act (FSMA), was signed into law in early 2011. It was rightfully heralded by the Editorial Board and other observers as providing some of the most important new consumer protections in decades. The previous food safety regulations too often dated from the horse-and-buggy era.

Nov 19, 2018 | ome kids in North Carolina didn't get vaccinated, so some kids in North Carolina got chickenpox. That's the takeaway from a Washington Post report examining the latest infectious disease outbreak in an anti-vax hotbed—this one, thankfully, outside the usual confines of California. It's about time we ramped up the geographic diversity, and it seems they've got a bit of a problem at the Asheville Waldorf School:

Chickenpox has taken hold of a school in North Carolina where many families claim religious exemption from vaccines. Cases of chickenpox have been multiplying at the Asheville Waldorf School, which serves children from nursery school to sixth grade in Asheville, N.C. About a dozen infections grew to 28 at the beginning of the month. By Friday, there were 36, the Asheville Citizen-Times reported.
