Susan, have you ever read Carl Sagan's "The Demon Haunted World"?
Although written in 1995, long before Youtubes and blogs were part of everyday life, it's as relevant now as it was back then, in countering the scaremongering that's out there regarding the heavens. I read it last year - anyone scared silly by the 2012/Nibiru nonsense would have greatly benefited from it.
