So, Buffalo is 5th most ‘stressed city’ according to this Business First article. Factors like stabilty, poverty, unemployment, insufficient eduction and housing helped determine this study.

None of these things affect me personally but when you add things like the constant barrage of budget talks, losing sport teams (wide right, no goal, etc.) and the exodus of the city’s population to the ‘burbs, you can’t help but understand why everyone is so stressed. Just yesterday alone our NHL season was canceled and our football team got rid of its big name Quarterback.

But we’ve got some prospects… Bass Pro is moving forward, looking to set up shop in the old Auditorium, which should be nice. Maybe it can kick-start some waterfront development and we’ll have somewhere to take the boy when the weathers nice.

Regardless, if you’re stressed, just DON’T PANIC!
