Time Magazine’s Article – “Why We Worry About The Things We Shouldn’t… …And Ignore The Things We Should”

Time magazine tends to cater to a pretty credulous mindset. If I want solid reporting and analysis of world events I favor “The Economist”, but I was pointed to “Time’s” December 4, 2006 cover story by a blog entry on Phil Plait’s “Bad Astronomy” blog.

I fly airplanes, I shoot guns, I don’t smoke and I do exercise. Mostly, however, I manage risk. Understanding what is safe and what is really dangerous, not just emotionally appealing, is key to focusing on and dealing with the real issues that face us today.

We really need to get a grip on the things that we allow our public leaders use to divert us from the real issues. Check out this article for some perspective.
