Here is some positive news.

It is too easy to fall into the trap of complaining all the time - especially about the "news" we receive on a national, regional, and local level.
Came across a couple of good news items in the last couple of days.
First and foremost an elected "official" who is willing to put his money where his mouth is. A Michigan congressman (I cannot find the article to get his name) wants to take a salary cut and wants others to do the same in order to help the State of Michigan out of its budgetary quagmire. Good on you, sir. I am going to keep looking to see if I can locate the story and get this guys name. I want to communicate with him directly.

On a more global note- the US and most of Europe are turning the tide on deforestsation according to the Food and Agriculture Organization, which is based in Rome and reports on such things. They stated that "careful forest management has had positive results" in the US and most of Europe. The article went on to state that poor countries are still taking too much forest and not replacing it, but I was encouraged by the fact that some progress is being made.
If the wealthier countries can practice good forest management, then that should be an encouraging example to the world that it is possible to turn something like that around.
