Default Grain Dust?

I got an order from beer-wine.com for my American Pale Ale that I will be brewing next week. I got a pound of milled Crystal 60L from them and I can see through the bag that there is a considerable amount of what I can only describe as dust. I'm sure when I go to steep these grains that all that dust is going to get in to the wort.

Is this a problem? Should I somehow try to eliminate this dust before I steep the grains?

You'll always get a fair amount of dust whenever any grain is crushed. It's normal. Steep it like you normally would.
There is a very fine line between "hobby" and "mental illness."
