It’s no secret that I’m claustrophobic.
There are security guards at the St. Louis Arch who probably still talk about the girl who hyperventilated all the way up the elevator to the top (and wouldn’t go back down…for two hours).
I wouldn’t wish it on anyone.
So I am happy to see small children today won’t have any problem at all with small, enclosed spaces…what with their mothers wrapping them in plastic inside their strollers!!
I, on the other hand, am gasping for air just looking at those poor kids. Don’t they know their oxygen is running out?

Enough about sharks. Let’s hear it for the ‘little people’ —
They also live in the oceans and bodies of water, but they’re microscopic. Yet they are responsible for the production of most of the oxygen in the Earth’s atmosphere.
Can sharks do that? No.
(And I doubt they would if they could.)
So, Discovery Channel, how about a week devoted to this teeny tiny miracle of nature? Phytoplankton concentrations have been decreasing each year since 1950 —
Let’s show ’em a little love.
