The Nose: Sidewalk Rage And A Surprising Case Of #BieberFever

Earlier this week, Bernie Madoff gave an interview to a reporter working on a book called "Wizard of Lies, Bernie Madoff and the Death of Trust." Wow. Prison must be really boring if he's willing to give that writer his time.

Or maybe he's still hoping to be liked or loved. One of today's panelists, Irene Papoulis, believes odd human behavior can often be explained that way. She says that's why Ken Jennings is still acting both feisty and charming about his drubbing at the hands of Watson the Computer. It's why Chris Murphy, a congressman running for Senate, has been tweeting about Justin Bieber's thinking about Canadian health care. 
 
But love goes out the window when Sidewalk Rage comes in. Scientists have been studying Pedestrian Aggressiveness Syndrome leading to Intermittent Explosive Disorder.
 
We'll try to avoid that today on the Nose, but Susan Campbell isn't making any promises.
