Simmering

Feeling a little uneasy lately, kind of like the proverbial frog in a pot.

Economic news, the “r” word, unemployment claims, global warming (don’t give me just this winter as proof that it isn’t happening ’cause that’s nonsense), the credit crunch, oil prices, heating oil prices, gas prices, all prices (since almost everything has a petroleum-related component) going up – all that.  Sure, I could just be giving in to the panic-mongering that passes for most news these days.  Worse than just me being a worry wart, is that this might be the very slippery edge of the post-“peak oil” slope.

Is it warm in here, or is it just me?
