    It is a big deal, I think that the distinction is that some of us feel differently about "how big" particularly when nobody got hurt, etc. If this happened in a less retarded era it still would have been serious but handled much differently. This public fear of everything has gone full retard, some of it is just cultural defect other parts are a serious miscalculation of risks, etc.

    True.

    But we can hang out on the Internet and whine about it, or we can adapt. Times change. “If this happened...” whenever? It didn’t. It happened here and now.

    We don’t live in a “less retarded era.” We can rail against it, but we’ll just end up with ulcers. Back then, there was probably also less need for daycare, period. We live differently now.
