Another two emails from my Republican friend

I received two more forwarded emails from a long-time friend who is a Republican, and they were interesting.

The first one, titled "Do you believe in coincidences?" was about the Roswell crash in 1947 and about a dozen prominent Democrats who were born nine months afterwards. [Sigh] It only took a couple of minutes to find out that all but two were born either years before the crash or years after it, but what hit me was that so many people nowadays would probably read something like this and believe it right off the bat. Knowing my friend, I suspect he forwarded it to me as a gag, but the tone of the original email was so serious that I have to believe it was intended to piss people off.

The other one was about old-style simple humor, and the message was, how did we get so serious. This one really got me thinking: how DID we get so serious and angry? Or is it that we only seem to hear about the ones who are?
