Looking on the bright side

A Diversity Dinner seems likely to produce rich rewards.

Elton John is going to get married. Congratulations!

I'm not crazy about being watched everywhere I go, but there's not doubt that cameras can protect citizens. Not the least because we could eventually see "official" tapes showing the police lying about the circumstances of an arrest.

It's Turn Off Your TV week. I have to admit, in my house, having the television on during a week would be more unusual than having it off. On the other hand, I do tend to watch DVDs or tapes several times a week (as opposed to "live" television.) I guess I could give those up for seven days, in favor of reading a book, listening to music, taking a walk, or even writing blog entries.

Some days, it's really hard to find interesting but upbeat stories to talk about.

I mean, a volcanic eruption? Maybe it's upbeat if no one was killed? (There are stories all over, but no pictures I can find.) (No, wait, look here.)

But profiteering on AIDS drug supplies intended for poor countries isn't good news.

Or, a girl offers to sell her virginity for enough money for medical care for her mother and to keep her younger brother in school? Okay, it's ghastly to think she'd have to do that, but why is her entire country rushing to condemn her while no one seems to have offered to help her and her family?

If it comes to that, what about help for Jimmy?

Not that much good news today.
