“There’s no need for alarm”
Alarm is overrated.
People say, "there's no need for alarm," as if that rule only applies right now, as if sometimes, there is a need for alarm.
It turns out that there's never a need for alarm, because alarm doesn't do us any good. Alertness, awareness, action… there's a need for this. But alarm?
[Completely unrelated, Roger's new telemarketer hack is pretty clever.]
