Depressing Times

I just read the Evening Times online (for free) and am now thoroughly depressed. The top few stories were:
  • 1 in3 shops sell cigarettes to kids.
  • Man convicted of raping a 14 year old in a park.
  • Man faces jail for urinating on dying woman.
  • Police hunt man for raping 9 year old girl.
  • Charity forced to close in cash crisis.
  • Hospital patients at risk due to broken lifts.
  • Thai plane crash deaths rise.
  • Northern Rock slides again.
  • Gran tackles armed robbers at Tesco.
It's just so much bad news at the moment.....

But surely the 'Gran tackles armed robbers at Tesco' is quite a positive story... I want to hear more!
