Alarmists, all

I'm getting really tired of the alarmist fever sweeping through people recently. Whether it's the lack of flu vaccine (never got one, rarely sick), gay marriage/civil unions (why can't we just let people live their lives?) or the re-election of Dubya (yep ... he's a cowboy, but how much damage can he really do?), people are whipped into a frenzy unlike any I've seen. Do people have nothing better to do with their lives or do they just thrive on the drama of it all? I wish everyone could calm down, take a deep breath, and try to talk to the "other side" (whatever lines are drawn) with civility and respect. If I never hear another shrill argument it'll be too soon.
