I read this in the NY Times. It rather cheered me up. Also, after reading it, I really had a strong desire to try not to read any news for the next week or so in hopes I'd convince myself it's right.
Since I'm a news junky and couldn't do this, I instead searched for happy news. What I found featured Madonna and a waving wombat so I was left thinking we really need a news agglomeration service that would feature only positive news that also took itself seriously.
Maybe if I can ever find enough spare time I'll start a second blog devoted to this.
