It’s Cold — VORTEX Cold!

If you live in the central or northeast United States, <newsflash!> it’s cold!

But in today’s America, everything must be a crisis.

So, that makes this particular very cold snap a “polar vortex.”  Ominous, isn’t it?  We even name winter storms now.  In some places we even have local (ahem) superintendents robo-calling entire towns to inform them that 1) it’s cold, and 2) make sure the kids are dressed appropriately.

Really?

Granted, it is cold, but c’mon people!  Sometimes I feel like we’re doomed as a people if “cold” in the “winter” continues to evoke this kind of media-driven mania and nannyist response.  Just bundle up.
