Here's my take on your question:

The author often writes about people, things, or happenings & how they affect life around them. He addresses the good & the bad & the lessons learned from both. He always relates what he feels & what he has learned, or what he doesn't understand. Trying to make sense of tragedies is one such lesson that is difficult to grasp.

Weeds are plants growing where they are not wanted, injuring or destroying the wanted plants or flowers around them. Life is full of weeds, some of which we can overcome, some of which take over, & some of which we can't make sense of.

I really don't know why he calls it Weeds, but that's how I view it, & always look forward to reading his column.
