The economic crisis and today's other top fears ...by Sybil Adelman Sage

Alan Greenspan characterized this economic crisis as the worst he's experienced in his lifetime, which was almost immediately disputed by John McCain assuring us, "The fundamentals of our economy are strong," echoed by Dana Perino, channeling George Bush, to tell reporters we have what it takes to deal with the "challenge."

I'm going with Alan Greenspan on this one, which requires prioritizing my list of fears once again.

Today's top 10 concerns:

1- The economic crisis

2- The McCain/Palin ticket - SOS, a sly way around term limits

3- My memory problems

5- Terrorism - though the attack in Yemen surely demonstrates that we in America are safe

6- Serious illness (includes death)

7- Environmental damage

8- Bush/Cheney & co. - a habit that's hard to break

9- My memory problems

10- The trafficking of women, the impoverished, our health care system, those fighting in a war, well, all who aren't safe and whose basic needs aren't met. Why did I limit myself to 10?
