Apparently Brian Williams of MSNBC had the same thought. A little while ago he sent out pleas to his viewers to send him ideas for good news stories. Apparently he received thousands in reply. So I guess I'm not the only one who's sick of the negativity. I've decided I'm going to post a roundup of the best good news stories I can find each day. I am just posting links. I take no credit for any of the writing/researching/editing/reporting or any of the work that went into producing these stories. I'm just sharing the links.
So here goes...
