Doom & Gloom

So whenever I read an article on CNN.com, off to the right is a list of the most popular stories of the day.  I couldn’t help but notice when reading about a shooting spree in Alabama this evening, that 8 out of the 10 most popular stories were all negative and awful.  See for yourself.

TOP STORIES ON CNN:

1.  Heads in coolers found in Mexico

2.  At least 10 dead in shooting spree

3.  Message found in Lincoln’s watch

4.  Girl has six organs, tumor removed

5.  Police:  “Fight Club” at school

6.  Cold Case:  John and Elizabeth Calvert

7.  No takers for Vick’s mansion

8.  Soldier charged in teen’s death

9.  Harry Potter book fetches $19,000

10.  Gitmo prisoners defend 9/11 attack

I know that drama and tragedy attract attention in the media, but it would be really nice to get some positive news once in a while…
