Why don't they print the good news?

The answer to that common plaint is that good news is routine--it's the bad stuff that IS news, and that's a good thing. Look at it this way: In Baghdad, a day without a car bomb is news.

That being said, sometimes good things do make the news, like this story about a woman celebrating her 60th birthday in an iron lung. (Yes it is a good-news story.)
