Great Day Shadowed by Disgust

Today is supposed to be a great day for me. Prior to my week long excursion, and post his three week excursion, I am set to see The Man :) However, I run through my daily routine which includes reading top headlines, and I'm disgusted:

"Father accused of assaulting baby"
"On-duty ambulance driver shot"
"Mom, daughter bullied teen"
"Scrap metal thieves destroy WWI statue"

Reading the stories behind these, I really have to wonder, "what is the world coming to?" followed up by "why doesn't the media report on GOOD stories?"

Why must we, as humans, dwell on the negative instead of the positive. I'm sure somewhere out there for every sickening story, there is a positive one. So why can't we report on those?
