Bruce Schneier on the news

One of the things I routinely tell people is that if it's in the news, don't worry about it. By definition, "news" means that it hardly ever happens. If a risk is in the news, then it's probably not worth worrying about. When something is no longer reported -- automobile deaths, domestic violence -- when it's so common that it's not news, then you should start worrying.
Stolen from Schneier's blog. For those who aren't geeks, he's a cybersecurity type of person, though he often comments on other types of security as well.
