The greatest challenge is stating the problem in a way that will allow a solution.

Stress and Distress have different outcomes.

Andrew Breitbart Dies: Most Controversial Moments (Video) - The Daily Beast

Andrew Breitbart Dies: Most Controversial Moments (Video) by The Daily Beast Mar 1, 2012 
Andrew Breitbart, the conservative blogger who died early Thursday morning, had several infamous confrontations under his belt. From his battles with Occupy Wall Street to his accusations against Shirley Sherrod, The Daily Beast takes a look back.

Andrew Breitbart was not a fan of the Occupy movement. Shortly after the protests began in New York, he posted leaked emails from a mailing list of OWS organizers in an effort to discredit the movement as a “conspiracy to ‘destabilize’ global markets.” Breitbart also made an appearance at Zuccotti Park to let the occupiers know what he thought of their little protest.

“Behave yourself, behave yourself,” Breitbart is heard repeating over and over in a video recorded by someone there. He then shouted, “You’re freaks and animals!” at the protesters, who countered his attacks by yelling, in unison, “Racist, sexist, anti-gay, right-wing bigots go away!” The conservative activist had to be pulled away from the protest by police as he yelled, “Stop raping people! You filthy freaks … you filthy, filthy, filthy, raping, murdering freaks!” At the end of the video, one protester laughed, “I’ve never raped anybody. I don’t know who he’s talking to.”

A new documentary, entitled Hating Breitbart was slated to be released this year. The film, which was previewed at this year’s CPAC, was clearly made to give Breitbart’s side of his own story. Against a black background and tense music, Breitbart declared, in an eerie whisper, “war” on the liberal media, which, he said, had tried to portray the Tea Party movement as racist..

Note: A. Breitbart has not been mentioned on this blog before because he does not interest me.  On the other hand, his death is seen as an opportunity to talk about the dangers of Distress on the heart. The official cause of death is not public yet but I'm guessing heart
