DEAR TOM AND RAY: My husband, who has not had an accident in the 20 years I've known him, drives in a way that makes me nervous. Specifically, I feel like I am in a video game when I sit in the front seat with him.

With great effort, I have stopped screaming in terror and hiding my face in my hands when I ride with him, because honestly, he has never had a wreck, so maybe it is some perspective problem that I have. Mostly, I try to keep my eyes squeezed shut.

DEAR REV. GRAHAM: I'm probably more fearful than most people, but why shouldn't I be? After all, the world is a scary place and a lot can go wrong. My husband says I shouldn't be so worried about things, but I can't help it. I guess it's just my personality.
