Not all headlines are doom and gloom
Gloom and doom seem to dominate the news, but here are some recent events I was happy to see in the headlines:
• A court in France barred a French newspaper from further publication of topless photos of Kate, Duchess of Cambridge, who apparently assumed she could sunbathe at a private villa — in private — without the rest of the world seeing her.
• Sales tax revenue was up in August in Yuma. No one likes taxes, but we can hope the increase is a hint of better times ahead.
• Having struggled earlier in his NFL career, Kevin Kolb is so far succeeding this season as the Arizona Cardinals' quarterback. (Disclaimer: This was written before Sunday's game against Philadelphia.)
• Any headlines referencing the approach of fall.
