It’s another frustrating week- nothing new about that!
In our weekly quest for some good news to report this week, your Coot’s correspondent confesses to some frustration. As always there is a preponderance of bad news caused principally by the perverse need for humans to gloat over somebody else’s misfortune. The Coot’s News Service tries to stay above this pettiness but sometimes bad news is actually good news. Take big cities. What good has ever come from big cities? Too many people crammed together is a recipe for disaster so therefore bad news for cities is good news for humanity.
I told you that the Coot’s News Service leaves not stone unturned.
We start the news this week with stories with the hopeful message that cities are not the answer. First the news that people under 30 are deserting New York City for greener pastures.
And if people are fleeing New York City, the high murder rate in Dallas will surely encourage savvy residents to relocate as well.

There is some real good news this week even as tornadoes continue to terrorize the country. This story tells how a young boy survived a tornado that destroyed his hour by hiding in a dryer.

In International news, it appears that recent elections may free the oppressed Scottish minority from the oppressive yoke of British domination. It is not clear just yet how this will play out and what it will mean to lovers of Scotch whisky all around the world. This Coot hopes that freedom for the Scots won’t mean that they have enough money to drink it all themselves leaving nothing to export.
Our final news item brings togther two of our favorite people, The president and Justn Bieber. With such a powerful duo, it just has to be good news.
So that’s the news for this week. It wasn’t easy finding good news and even harder to give it the best spin. Come back next week. We can always hope that the news will get better.
