The Sky Is Falling (fable) aka Chicken Little = DU

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
The Sky Is Falling, also known as Chicken Licken, Henny Penny or Chicken Little is an old fable about a chicken (or a hare in early versions) who believes the sky is falling. The phrase, "The sky is falling," has passed into the English language as a common idiom indicating a hysterical or mistaken belief that disaster is imminent. This usage is generally derogatory.

Things will be fine .... Obama has the nomination end of story
