In need of flowers and rainbows

Is it me or does all the news seem to be horribly sad? I understand that scandal and bad news sells, but I couldn't seem to find one positive story this entire week. Instead it's pirates, earthquakes, financial disaster, unemployment, cyberspies, kidnapping of reporters and ship captains, shootings, and torture by governments. I keep hearing that Matchbook Twenty Song: " . . . but I believe the world is burning to the ground.. Oh well, I guess we're going to find out. let's see how far we've come . . . "

After the past couple weeks, I could stand to hear something good. Anyone? Something good?

UPDATE: Have read a bunch of your blogs and am now feeling better about the world. Still feel free to leave happy news as the kids are off from school tomorrow and I may need a pick me up.

I can't report something good, but just go to the travel section of any newspaper (Swissinfo) and you'll always find something to smile about, at the very least in photos. :)

I don't watch the news. I stopped watching televised news about three years ago and I've never looked back. I only read the front page of the NYT online and that's it. Just a quick glance and that's all I need to know.

The best thing you can do is stop watching the news...or search on the internet for GOOD NEWS....and see what you find....Bad news sells...that is why you hear it and see it everywhere...I try to stay as oblivious to the news as possible...happier that way!!!! More ignorant also, but hey....if the choice is ignorance or sadness...I'll pick ignorance...

Finding good news on blogs sound like a good idea!
Beats the TV and newspapers.
