Perspective, Please

The headlines sure are depressing today.  A stroll through the New York Times Web site reveals the following gems:

-Israeli/Palestinian turmoil
-Threats of a federal government shutdown due to a contentious Congress
-Continued anxiety about the European debt crisis
-A slowing Chinese economy which may (or may not) indicate that a new global recession is in play
-Growing concerns about new terrorist cells forming in Yemen

Of course, many in the marketing, digital and social circles are preoccupied with the calamity that is Facebook's change in functionality and user interface.

I realize we (me included) tend to not overly fret about events outside our control or influence.  However, I wonder if all of this energy and ire directed at Facebook could be channeled towards more productive endeavors.
