The Bad News Keeps Piling In, Cont.
I think the pervasive feeling of unease in this country has a lot to do with the unfavorable ratio of bad news to good news. I picked off the following headlines from online breaking news:
Federal judges overturn Md. handgun licensing law.
Oil spill tops 1 million gallons, threatens Gulf of Mexico wildlife.
A growing global footprint for China’s space program worries Pentagon.
Dean Phillips supporters launch ads attacking Biden’s electability.
There was one good news item. (Take what you can get, I guess): “Costa Rica’s coast guard rescues hundreds of sea turtle eggs.”
