Thought I would start a thread of good news stories. Things the regular and especially U.S. news sources tend to over look.

First up, US teen invents advanced cancer test using Google.

I love stories like this because it helps push back the "damn kids these days " that is always there -- mostly from seeing the worst of the world on TV, internet, IRL etc.

Lots of good news lately, it seems. Here's one from our local CBS affiliate but originating from Villa Hills, OH.

I don't know if this is really good news, or just cool I can't afford to go to any of the imperial parks just south of me, but it would be really cool to see. Don't know if kids really know how good the simpsons really were in their prime.

It is worth the time and effort to watch the video, and read the story.

I don't know a whole lot about these programs, but I do know there are a lot of poor people out there and a lot struggling.
