Too Much Time on One's Hands

(1) Here's some extremely important news: "Study confirms that ending your texts with a period is terrible.  Researchers, led by Binghamton University's Celia Klin, report that text messages ending with a period are perceived as being less sincere, probably because the people sending them are heartless."

The fact that something this trivial would be the focus of a study is amazing.  And what kind of people get offended by a simple punctuation mark? We're in worse shape and more immature than I imagined. 

(2) "Woman's Complaint Leads To Menorah Removal In Lakewood: Report.The report says the woman wanted a nativity scene added and threatened a lawsuit if it wasn't."   How does a complaint from just one spiteful woman result in such caving?  Why didn't they tell her to jump in the lake?  Also, in case she didn't know it, it IS Hanukah; it won't be Christmas yet for a while!
