What Americans fret over

North Korea threatens to unleash nuclear war. The federal debt continues to grow at a record pace.
More Americans than ever on Food Stamps.

Yet it's silly, trivial stuff that gets Americans up in arms.

Like what name Target attaches to a dress color.
Some Target shoppers say a label that listed the color of a plus-size dress as "manatee gray" was insulting.
And then there's the mom who takes personal offense to "midget" pickles.

Seriously, how many people who cue into stuff like this have any clue about the economic decay or other life changing issues unfolding around them?
