Everything seemingly is spinning out of control

Seriously? That's a headline for an an AP article? See the unnecessarily attention grabbing headline HERE. This is one peg down from a newspaper headline proclaiming, "We're all totally screwed" and two rungs from, "OMG! WE'RE ALL GONNA DIE!!!!" But when you look at the editor's picture, it kind of makes sense.


The article talks about all kinds of problems, such as higher food prices, midwestern floods, and natural disasters. As if these kinds of things are new. I think the Great Depression and both World Wars were much bigger deals than all the things the article complains about. And don't get me started on the Black Death in Europe.
