 From Carina Chocano's column in Salon today:

For now, the
new rage in white-collar wilding, according to
psychotherapist and "rage expert" Deborah Cooper, is
"desk rage" (read: murderous workplace rampages).
Death by insane, gun-toting co-worker is now the
second most common form of workplace expiration, and
Cooper predicts that instances of this trendy new
scourge will only increase from now until Valentine's
Day, a period of time apparently chock-full of "trigger
events" such as the presidential inauguration and the
Super Bowl.
