Now that I got that Rant off my chest.........

USA Today did it this month, MySpace announce their intent this week to go with interactive news. That means news with reader comments. Good News Now will be going interactive Monday, March 18, 2007. When you click on a news story link you will go to a new summary page. That page will give you a brief summary of the good news story, why I think it is good news and a link to the full story. It will have a place for you to sign in and leave your comments. At Good News Now we are always nice, well most of the time... we try.

We are also hosting a Good News Now Forum page. It goes online NOW! Our goal is for you to share and comment on good news. We are looking for the local, grass roots stories the press doesn’t cover.

Everyday we search the internet for good news, but we know most good news doesn't get reported. We want to know about your organization, church, school or family. Have you done something news worthy that we should know about? Let us know. We will post the best on our main site.

Methodist panel backs Bush library

Methodist panel backs Bush library

When Ronald Reagan died and people began to talk about his legacy, I wasn’t sure if I was on the same planet I had been when he was president. Could they be talking about the same man?
I think SMU considered this phenomenon when deciding to approve the Bush library. Why is this story under reported? Because Bush is unpopular at the moment. I think a presidential Library is a plus for any university especially when it is the First Lady’s alma mater. I say, “Shame on the faculty for their short sightedness, hooray for the panel and the school's Board of Regents who approved it.”
