IN TAKING THE pulse of how people feel about retirement, a Wells Fargo/Gallup survey of investors found that nearly half fear they will outlive their savings. This certainly was the sentiment of many readers who participated in one of my recent online discussions. "Quite frankly, I am afraid to retire," one woman wrote. "My running default answer to when will I retire is,'I will work until I am unable.' I am 53. I've been divorced since 2004. My kids are adults. My parents are still around.

  Anxiety grips us all. We dread our impending decrepitude; World War III; losing our jobs. But how many of us have cheesy angst? Pink does. "I'm afraid of the world running out of cheesecake," the mellifluous Doylestown-born international recording artist tells Women's Health mag. And "of the world running out of Key limes, because Key lime cheesecake is the best. " But her greatest fear was becoming a mom, says Pink, who has a 2-year-old, Willow Sage Hart , with husband Carey Hart . Later, when she became a mom, she learned a different fear, fear for her baby.

The Wiz Live wasn't nearly as good as the movie version. Why bring up the production a month after it was televised? Because the song "Be a Lion," sung to the Cowardly Lion character, comes to mind when I think about the United States at this point in its history. In so many ways, we're acting like a nation running scared. Add our fear of another 9/11 to the lingering economic trepidation left by the recession and you find a country that has forgotten it's still a lion. I'm not the first one to point out how Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump is mining fear for votes.

Several hundred people gathered Thursday night at a West Philadelphia school to address concerns raised by the shooting of a Philadelphia police officer by a man who allegedly claimed allegiance to the Islamic State. National attention has been on the link to international terrorism, but for many residents of the neighborhood near Cobbs Creek, fear is nothing new. During the evening assembly at Bryant School, 60th Street and Cedar Avenue, some repeated familiar refrains: Seniors are too afraid to leave their houses, and gun violence is commonplace.

The most gut-clenching, psyche-rattling moment of Margee Kerr's 36 years on this planet came when she was 116 stories in the air above it, strapped into a harness so she could lean out from the top of Toronto's CN Tower. For Kerr, it was partly an academic experience. She studies fear for a living, and will speak about her work Wednesday night at the Franklin Institute, as part of Philadelphia's annual nine-day science festival. Thus far, attendees have been gazing at stars, digging up fossils, exploring colonial-era medicine, and solving murder mysteries.

Question: I have been dating a wonderful man for about six months. We love each other and see a future together. He is a recovering addict, which isn't exactly the problem. The problem is I live in fear that he will relapse. He told me he has relapsed numerous times, never getting much past a year sober, but people don't notice because he has been high-functioning. He just made it to 15 months and I feel like I'm looking for signs of a relapse and living in fear of one. How do I manage this?

ARIES (March 21-April 19). Your praises will be sung today, but not as loudly as you'd like them to be. Is this mic even on? Well, hopefully it's enough to know that a couple admiring souls care enough to tell you. TAURUS (April 20-May 20). The answer to "Why?" will be "Why not?" That's better than "Why ask why?" and "Because I said so. " GEMINI (May 21-June 21). You'll struggle with a certain line of reasoning and/or a conversational trajectory. This is indicative of turmoil that goes much deeper.

Toxic mercury vapors had been detected inside the rooms where nearly 100 babies and children had played for two years. DeSilvio's daughters, then ages 3 and 6, were among them.

ISSUE | BREXIT U.S. voters can learn from Britain's fear We in the United States should take note of the reaction in Britain since its vote to withdraw from the European Union ("EU urges Britain to make quick exit," Sunday). Many who voted to leave expressed remorse. It would seem that far too many voted on an emotional rather than a rational basis. In the cold, clear light of day, "Leave" voters realized their choice had been based on emotion and xenophobia. Rational thought did not seem to factor in for these voters.

DRESDEN, Germany - About 2,000 Germans gathered in the market square in this elegant old town to denounce Angela Merkel as a traitor - and to cheer Britain on for deciding to leave the European Union. They were taking part in the regular Monday demonstrations of Pegida, the German acronym for Patriotic Europeans Against the Islamization of the West. The Pegida crowd was waving the banners of Germany and the free state of Saxony along with signs saying "Thank you, Brexit. " I asked a group of middle-aged men in polo shirts, slacks, and sandals, all workers in a machinery plant, why they were there.

But more to the immediate point, Romford had a special place in the battle over whether Britain would "Brexit" the European Union. Romford was listed as the most pro-"Leave" town in Britain, based on a poll by the You.Gov website. Its Conservative party headquarters - called Margaret Thatcher House - was decked in Leave posters, although Conservative Prime Minister David Cameron backed Remain.

ISSUE | MOTHER'S DAY A son's greatest fear From the back window of my mother's house, I see the dogwood tree I bought her 52 years ago for Mother's Day. Its pink flowers have fallen, covering the path. The tree and I have been nurtured by my mother. We both have grown in maturity and strength. Her house is no longer her home, because she doesn't live there anymore. After a traumatic fall in November and two months in the hospital and rehab, she couldn't live by herself. When I visit my mother, she at times seems lost in her own conversation.
