No worries? Right…

 Everyday, I read about something new to worry about.

A few weeks ago, I read that dishwashers can contain a nasty fungus impervious to hot water and detergent.

In Monday's Earthweek column, Steve Newman reports that a University of California geophysicist is worried that that the sun will soon “spew massive amounts of charged particles toward Earth” knocking out a great deal of our ability to communicate electronically.

As a natural worrier since childhood (at 9, I talked to adult guests at our table about my fear of World War III) I don't really want to add any more worries to my list.

And usually, in the end, it's not the stuff you worry about that gets you. Right?
