Spinning out of control

Headline of the week from the Associated Press: Everything seemingly is spinning out of control. (You see how they took the edge off with the “seemingly”? The sky is falling! Maybe!)

“It is pretty scary,” said Charles Truxal, 64, a retired corporate manager in Rochester, Minn. “People are thinking things are going to get better, and they haven’t been. And then you go hide in your basement because tornadoes are coming through. If you think about things, you have very little power to make it change.”

My guess is that the writers’ editor was out of town and they decided to see if they could slip this Onion-esque article on to the wire. (thx, scott)
