Say you're a bit glass-half-empty. You expect the worse. You panic, uneccesarily. Let's face it, if you're not Jewish, you're from some other immigrant minority where your forebears couldn't sleep at night because they might be coming to get you.

The last thing you need, then, is the red24 security alert. Sadly, for me, it came with my house insurance (I love cross-selling). Now, I get a daily email telling me about tragic things going on in our global village that I should avoid. Bird flu is on its way to India. Protests in Venezuala. Don't even think about traveling to Burundi.

Of course, I could cancel it. But some deep, dark recess of my soul kinda - I know I shouldn't admit this - enjoys it.
