I enjoyed this- but why is the psychologist's theory about women missing their WWII husbands icky and sexist? Seems plausible to me, that a group of people used to having their significant other around and then having to deal with a prolonged absence might be a bit more edgy than usual when sleeping at night. It could be total BS too, but it's as good a guess as many other guesses into a common thread that could factor into mass hysteria. I certainly wouldn't call it sexist, just incorrect, at worst. Is such a thing beyond our imagination in our new politically-correct century?
