The Really Scary Stuff The state of everything right now is one of tension. Covid, the election, the economy and social issues threaten further indecision and fighting amongst our leaders. Our current state of affairs provides a stressful, uneasy environment for all of us. So yes, there is still plenty of 'scary' stuff out there that folks are concerned about. HOWEVER...
