♪Nobody robbed a liquor store on the lower part of town
Nobody OD'd, nobody burned a single building down
Nobody fired a shot in anger, nobody had to die in vain
We sure could use a little good news today♪
I never thought I'd post the lyrics to an Anne Murray tune here on Infomaniac. (Feel free to mock me, as I suspect you will.)
In this song, our Annie "expresses despair over all of the violence and suffering she reads about in newspapers and witnesses on TV news coverage, and notes how wonderful it would be if, for just one day, the newspapers and television news anchors had nothing to report, because they had "nothing bad to say"."
The Mistress has a friend who is always upbeat; a real "glass half-full" kinda guy. "Mr. Happy," as I call him, has a beautiful home, a loving wife, and the time and money to pursue his passions. But as we know, those ingredients aren't necessarily the key to happiness. So I asked him, "What's your secret?" and he replied, "I don't read the news."
Personally, I like to be informed of what's going on in the world so I read the papers and watch the newscasts on TV. But it's enough to make you weep or crawl back under the covers.
To counteract all the bad news the papers deem fit to print, I click HERE and I suggest you try it out for yourselves. Their daily good news just might restore your shaky faith in humanity.
