I think that's a huge problem with the world today -- people over-reacting emotionally to something without exercising their intelligence to think it through and figure out if there's really anything for them to be upset about.




It's enough to make you wonder if "I'm Dreaming of a White Christmas" will come under fire for being a covert expression of white supremacy.

But every year I listen to Steve Lawrence & Eydie Gorme's rendition of "Baby It's Cold Outside" and I've never gotten the impression it's date-rapey. Certainly not with the woman saying "Well, maybe just a half a drink more" and "Well, maybe just a cigarette more."
