The sky is falling!

Have you been paying attention to the headlines lately?

Hurricane Gustav is the “storm of the century!”

Those who do not flee Hurricane Ike will face “certain death!!”

The DOW crashed 500 points in one day!!! We are headed towards another Great Depression!!!!

I for one am getting rather sick and tired of all the Chicken Littles of the world.

News isn’t news anymore, it’s entertainment. And as such they have to make it as sensational as possible.

I try so hard not to pay any attention. But that is very hard to do when it is constantly being trumpeted in your face every waking hour.
