[OS X TeX] Bibliography as section heading

Hi again Alan,

I followed your suggestion to use a package instead of the renew  

My section headings are now capitalized. However they are not  
capitalized in the table of contents (they were when I entered them  
in all capitals by hand).

I'm leaving it like this for now, I think I can get away with it. But  
if someone knows how I would get the TOC display headings the same  
way as the rest of the document.

Too bad titlesec conflicted with hyperref, because it did produce a  
properly formatted TOC.

Anyway, I am grateful for the help you gave me.
