We’ve got a couple great pieces today exploring the link between culture and the Tuscon massacre. First is a piece from PopMatters, What ‘Taxi Driver’s Travis Bickle Can - and Can’t — Tell Us About What Happened in Tuscon, which explores how alienation and loneliness can exacerbate madness. And its companion piece, Tuscon, How Culture Can Shape Killers, touches on Bickle, too, but puts his specter in context of other assassins through history.
