In dealing with crisis, be a “Mitch” and not the “Crazy lady”

The Hobbledehoy are reading too many reports of Americans freaking out over their Covid-19 confinement. We know it is difficult, but please stay inside and heed the advice of health experts.

Watch a movie – perhaps a classic like Alfred Hitchcock’s The Birds. When you come to the scene at the Bodega Bay diner, ask yourself, “Do want want to be strong, caring and resourceful like “Mitch”, or do I want to be the ‘Hysterical Lady’?”

The actress Doreen Lang played the “hysterical mother” (aka “Crazy Lady”) brilliantly, did she not?
