Good News Edition – April 15, 2018


Each week I think, “Wow, what a week!” … and then the next week arrives and the new batch of headlines tease stories even more unbelievable and baffling than the previous week’s. It’s like we’ve stepped through the looking glass, but instead of the Red Queen we have the Orange King, behaving like a tyrannical toddler and screaming (via ALL CAPS tweets), “Off with their heads!!” It’s exhausting. Thank goodness that along with the cringe-worthy news ledes, there are also some stories that reassure, inspire, and amuse. I mean, seriously, thank goodness.

Here is this week’s collection of headlines that won’t make your head spin.

Enjoy!
