Good News for the New Year

A Dutch journalist and data analyst have come up with a wonderful idea to open the new year:  cards made of good-news charts.

Below is an example, based on Dutch life expectancy.

This is an excellent idea.  I think next year I will make Christmas cards on this principle.

The Federal Government Shows Admirable Restraint Against Armed Anti-Government Renegades

An anti-government militia has seized federal property in Oregon.

The federal government has show admirable restraint in containing them thus far.

Ironically, these white guys, who have taken up arms against the United States, claim they are not traitors, but are defending the Constitution.

I have no doubt that if this group of armed rebels had been Arabs or black people claiming to defend their rights, Fox News would be calling for their heads.
