      by how many people seem governed in critical behaviors and life style by irrational or completely disproportional fears. They routinely participate in activities with considerable risk, rush hour expressway driving, while then missing out on some wonderful things because there is a very minor associated risk.

      A lot is plain ignorance. For example, many don't know dangerous spiders and snakes so every one of them is a source of fear. Other cling to fears even after masses of evidence prove them groundless.

      A sad state for a life and often not far from a true psychosis.

      The only foes that threaten America are the enemies at home, and those are ignorance, superstition, and incompetence. [Elbert Hubbard]
