    From Generic Blog Copyright© 2011 by Ralph Couey *Johnstown, PA Tribune-Democrat June 14, 2011 as "Freaking out over tiny invaders" The other day I arrived at work to find one of my co-workers in full freak-out mode.  This is not an unusual state of mind for her, as she is a person about whom one could say, ?She is such a Mom.?  When Sarah Palin uses the term ?Mama Grizzly? she is describing my friend to a ?T.?Anyway, the subject of that particular day?s rant was news of a head lice outbreak in one of the classrooms
