Happy Headlines

by Roger Pynn

I carp on headline writers often enough that I thought it my year-end duty to point to some that make me happy.  They ought to make you happy, too, and they have nothing to do with how the headlines were written.

Instead, they fall into the “good news” category … and prove that when there is good news to report media will tell the story.

I like this one the most because it tells me there is light at the end of this terrible tunnel we’ve been driving through since late 2008.

In the same vein, this one tells me consumers have money to spend again, and that means people are making money.  Hopefully they are making it through gainful employment rather than crime or gambling.

And I like this one because when I’m really old, I have less fear that there will be phone cords to trip on as I totter around.  You see, there’s a silver lining to every cloud.

As the year draws to a close, I hope the headlines bring a smile to you, too.
