Apparently, proximity to the Bekasaurus is a factor.

    Not mutually exclusive, the way I understand the brain’s wiring. Input about suffering from the outside world is supposed to resonate in the brain’s empathy circuitry.

    But you’ve got a point about the wingnuts. Lesions in the brain’s “mirror neuron circuit” effectively destroy it. Take W, for instance: decades of coke and alcohol bingeing likely fried his, making murdering a million Iraqis or watching poor people drown in New Orleans just another day at the office.

    Hate and anger can do the same thing.

  2. i would choose unconsciousness over talking to glenn dreck any day. the thing that strikes me is how nobody came running to help the guy. notice that dreck never drops his index cards, the cameras keep rolling, and the woman off on the side doesn’t start to walk towards him until she hears that they will break for commercial. you would think someone’s instinct as a human being would kick in and rush to the guy and worry about his well-being rather than how it will all look on camera.
