I learned a long time ago to keep a safety helmet on hand for those times when the sky is falling.
What? The Supreme Court says same-sex couples can marry? Uh, oh! There goes democracy. The sky falling!
What? Obamacare is constitutional? Darn? A victory for Obama! The sky is falling!
What? States' rights don't prevail over individuals' rights to vote, no matter the color of their skin? The sky is falling!
Never miss a local story.
What? Women get to vote? That is against God's will! The sky is falling!
What? The Earth really does circle the sun? I'm telling you, I need to get that helmet on.
On the other hand, the sky looks pretty intact to me, and I think a bunch of people need to take a deep breath, calm down and understand that our country will do just fine for the simple reason that the Supreme Court eventually gets it right more often than not.
