This is what I woke up to this morning

As soon as I woke up this morning, I turned the TV on. What a shock. There were stories about the tornadoes in Alabama and Georgia, a bad bus wreck in Atlanta where at least 6 died (college team from Buffington University in Ohio), and then all the coverage of Anna Nicole's burial in the Bahamas. To top it all off, they then announced that the 2007 hurricane season should be another bad one. My goodness, don't we ever get to hear about anything good that happens any more? We used to have a segment on our local news about "nice" things that happened. What ever happened to that?

how distressing. Anne Murray did a song a few decades back "Sure could use, a little good news today" do you remember that one? I rolled out this morning Kids had the mornin' news show on Bryant Gumbel was talkin' 'bout the fighting in Lebanon Some senator was squawkin' 'bout the bad economy It's gonna get worse you see, we need a change in policy There's a local paper rolled up in a rubber band One more sad story's one more than I can stand Just once how I'd like to see the headline say "Not much to print today, can't find nothin' bad to say", because Nobody robbed a package store on the lower part of town Nobody OD'ed, nobody burned a single buildin' down Nobody fired a shot in anger, nobody had to die in vain We sure could use a little good news today I'll come home this evenin' I'll bet that the news will be the same Somebody takes a hostage, somebody steals a plane How I wanna hear the anchor man talk about a county fair And how we cleaned up the air, how everybody learned to care Whoa, tell me Nobody was assassinated in the whole Third World today And in the streets of Ireland, all the children had to do was play And everybody loves everybody in the good old USA We sure could use a little good news today

I love to listen to Anne Murray, and I don't believe I ever heard that song. I sure do like the words, and I just had to give you the Best Response for the words to the song. Thanks so much.

Thanks Claudia! I actually had to alter the words a little. I used package store because the item that is sold in class 6 stores that begins with an "L" has 6 letters and ends in "R" (pronounced licker :) ) is not allowed to be posted via mylot mature content guidelines.
