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.”
