Hmmm. I was puzzled by the following suggestion. For the benefit of listmembers who aren't up on children's stories, "Chicken Little" was an alarmist chicken who was hit on the head by an acorn and came to the conclusion that the sky is falling! More generally, "Chicken Littles" might be viewed as those who erroneously warn of impending disasters. Who are the chicken littles on this list? Are you sure that the list that your message was intended for wasn't "MeltdownIII"? After all, it is on that list where there are frequent citations from the "prudent bear" -- someone who might be viewed as a non-Marxian chicken little.
