GOOD NEWS EDITION – Saturday, June 17th

It’s been another tough week. In addition to the weight of “the usual” insane happenings, including Mitch McConnell’s stealth approach to healthcare and the deepening Russia investigation, there was also the shooting at the Congressional baseball practice in Virginia. But, even in that dark moment, we can find a glimmer of humanity, as evidenced in the comforting words of Stephen Colbert and Trevor Noah.

And now, we bring you more evidence that there are still good people in the world, that we can still learn to get along, and that sometimes the truth does prevail and justice is duly served.

Once upon a time, a child was born into wealth and wanted for nothing, but he was possessed by bottomless, endless, grating, grasping wanting, and wanted more, and got it, and more after that, and always more. He was a pair of ragged orange claws upon the ocean floor, forever scuttling, pinching, reaching for more, a carrion crab, a lobster and a boiling lobster pot in one, a termite, a tyrant over his own little empires.
