Collecting his thoughts on the thesis process would save him the trouble of reciting the same advice to students each year.

But the evidence shows violence is extremely rare among the mentally ill. The story of Tuesday’s Germanwings plane crash, which killed all 150 people onboard, has only gotten more tragic as more details emerge. On Thursday, audio from the plane’s black box showed that co-pilot Andreas Lubitz apparently locked the commanding pilot out of the cockpit, and seems to have intentionally crashed the plane.
