Stop Scaring Us!

A quick post this evening - well, morning (another will follow later).
I got home from work and before I left for the first read-through of "The Most Fabulous Story..." I turned on the news, hoping to catch a weather report. What I got was 8 minutes of fear-mongering about Swine Flu. Please! Now, I know that news programs are all about ratings. And fear = ratings, I suppose. But seriously. You might think we're in the midst of a Stephen King novel.
Stop it, Media! We all have enough to worry about, what with the economy, global warming and religious extremist terrorists. Now you have to add the flu? No wonder I hate you!
Wash your hands.
