  •  Yeah, what's with the shaddap-itis, anyway? (none)
    I've spent most of the day tracking down people I know and making sure they're okay so I've only given the news/statements a cursory glance. I'm just relieved, and curious how various people are dealing with it.

    But why -- and this is no dis to katya -- is there such a widespread effort to LIMIT discussion of various aspects of these events when they occur and attention is focused and it's hot on people's minds?

    Is there some kind of talking-point contest I'm unaware of or unwritten rule of etiquette that disconcerting realities must only be raised when they're most likely to be ignored?
