Positive News Today!

People get their news these days frm a variety of sources...including television, radio, magazines and the Internet. However, newspapers remain the most time-honoured medium through which news is delivered to people of all ages. I've also noted that there is much 'negative headlines' and articles that often dominate the pages of the press...even through other media.

H. L. Mencken stated, “A newspaper is a device
for making the ignorant more ignorant...and the crazy, crazier.”

It may be that a person employed by a newspaper,
whose business it is to separate the 'wheat from the chaff'...
then proceeds to see that the 'chaff' is printed.”

Regardless, more than half the world's adults
throughout the country read a paper each day!
The Hamilton Spectator, I receive daily (Monday to Saturday)
delivered to my door before the breakfast hour.
Relevant to the foregoing, I share with you positive headlines that captured my attention in today's publication. A few of these I share with you.
