I was never concerned about the matter, but I just wanted to head off any concerns people might have.  It’s easy to freak out over this stuff, and the dumbasses at fox news (for example; I’d link to their site if I didn’t have moral qualms about ever linking to any fox news material..) are doing everything they can to ensure they get their piece of the panic traffic at their site.
