MEXICO CITY - Mexican commuters are furious over a disastrous design failure that has forced the closure of one of this huge city's busiest and newest subway lines. Nearly half a million passengers have had to find alternative transportation after officials shut down most of Line 12, which runs about 15 miles from south of the capital toward its heart. It could take six months or more to repair all of the damage, said officials, who attributed most of the problems to train wheels that are incompatible with the rails.

The Bobbitt and Menendez brothers cases have a common denominator, anger. None of them knew how to properly deal with their anger. Anger is a reaction to feelings of helplessness, hopelessness, not being heard, being discounted, used, abused, etc. If one is verbally attacked, it is better to say, "I feel that I am being attacked by you," rather than "you dumb S.O.B., you can't talk to me that way." The latter cuts off communication in a hostile fashion, the former opens the door for discussion.

According to "Learning Anger at Mother's Knee" (UPI, Dec. 2), men and women respond to anger in different ways. Specifically: "Men tend to blame others when they get angry, while women blame themselves and feel guilty about their anger." And why the difference? According to the story's headline and lead paragraphs, mothers cause the difference by encouraging little boys to take action when angry while advising little girls to ignore and forget their feelings. Now, I recall being told by my mother and my father to ignore irritating behavior rather than encourage it with an angry reply; they told the same thing to my brother.

NEWTOWN, Conn. - It was meant to be a day of mourning, but parishioners inside a Catholic Church here had their fears renewed Sunday when a bomb threat forced a mid-morning evacuation and a SWAT team converged and surrounded a rectory. The threat, which came during morning services, was “a menacing call that threatened to disrupt the Mass in a violent way,” said Brian Wallace, a spokesman for the local diocese. As parishioners filed out of St. Rose of Lima Church, there was a swell of raw emotion -- disappointment, distress, anger and sadness, Wallace said.

CAIRO -- Egypt's Islamist-dominated constitutional assembly passed a rushed draft of a constitution early Friday to ease public anger against President Mohamed Morsi's expanded powers and preempt an expected court decision to disband it this weekend. The proposed constitution states that the nation will be governed by the “principles” of Islamic law, the same wording that was in the constitution under deposed leader Hosni Mubarak. But critics argue that certain language was open to interpretation and could allow conservative Islamists to impose a more rigid version of sharia law. The draft was sent to the presidential palace.

LONDON -- Amid rising anger from local residents and forecasts of more rain, the British government sent military officials to southwest England on Thursday to help deal with floodwaters that have turned whole villages into islands and drowned parts of the country's storybook countryside. Some rural communities in the county of Somerset have been cut off for weeks by the flooding, the result of storms that have lashed Britain almost nonstop since Christmas. The freak weather is linked to the harsh snowstorms in the United States, where cold fronts have collided with warm fronts in the South and strengthened the jet stream across the Atlantic, stirring a cauldron of precipitation.
