I came across a quotation this morning. It caused my mind to
jump to some of the situations I encounter, in my job as a
newspaper editor, where it is applicable. Humorist Dave Barry
(yes, that's him pictured) is credited with this gem:
"No matter what happens, someone will take it too seriously."
How true! I interact with many people who apparently have too much time to get riled up about this thing or another. Sure, everyone has his/her peeve or hot button, but some people seem to make it their full-time occupation.
