Americans Fear a World War More Than a Nuclear Accident . . . But a Few of Us Are Most Afraid of an Alien Invasion
A new “60 Minutes” / “Vanity Fair” poll recently asked Americans what they worry about the most. Is it another world war . . . a nuclear accident . . . an oil shortage . . . or an alien invasion?
–The world war came in first, and a nuclear accident came in second. And we COULD spend our time analyzing that . . . or we could focus on how “alien invasion” DID get some votes.
–The exact totals weren’t released, but “alien invasion” did NOT get 0%. Meaning that there ARE people out there who believe one really is coming.
–The survey also found the three pieces of mail Americans dread the most are, in order, a jury duty summons, a letter about their mortgage, and a credit card statement.
