Nature vs. Nurture

A tragic event--a suicide of a famous child of parents who both committed suicide--has prompted these two New York Times columnists to revisit the topic of Nature vs. Nurture in their column today.

As a child of parents who each have histories of anxiety and depression both personally and on both sides of their families, I have spent many hours during my formative years brooding over my genetic fate. I had put it all aside for a decade or so...until I had children of my own!
