Despite What We Think Things Are Getting Better

Despite the news on the television these days our world is not going to hell in a handbasket. Sure, there are challenges and disasters to be coped with now. But there are many positive indications of things in our society getting better that deserve to be reported on as well. An astrology columnist I like, Rob Brezney, has made it his life's mission to get people noticing what's going well as an antidote to all the gloom and doom news reporting around us. You know the saying "no news is good news?" Well... what if the supposedly less sensational news WAS worth reporting? You know, the positive stuff? What would be the nation's confidence level and willingness to cope with change and see it in a positive way then?

Radley Balko, writing for reaonsonline, wrote a story at the beginning of this year recapping the news of 2008. He called it Good News from a Bad Year and it's well worth your time.
