    If this individual incessantly blathers on, your own focus and work performance may be effected, and quite frankly - how "effective" can someone be -who indulges in tabloid sensationalism to the point where the conversation enters the workplace.

    These types are usually the source of tension.

    At the very least, make it known that you will not be a sounding board, but without the insults.

    I tend to encounter "Rapturists" who must constantly remind me the "End is Near", and itemize each and every news event to "prove their point" - I tell them that when the "End" does come, no one will be here to feel sorry or gloat about it - so why talk and worry about it?

    Conservatism is an obsession with the past ... with little regard for the future.
