We know the news is overrun with tragedy. For example, some headlines right now on NYTimes.com:
Bin Laden Tells Militants to Fight in Sudan
A Hospital Is Overwhelmed by Victims of Chaos in Nepal
Aetna Will Not Cover Implant to Treat Severe Depression
Generally, not the most uplifting stories.
So my friend just pointed me to a site with a humorous concept, http://www.greatnewsnetwork.org. Their description:
"The great news network, a positive news site where everyone can contribute."
Basically, it's a website with only good news. Some of their headlines:
Lebanon making historic strides in self-governance, UN Security Council told
Cocktail of drugs offers hope for reversing diabetes
Wildlife defies Chernobyl radiation
Just thought you guys might enjoy this novel, yet oddly funny, concept.
