Want Some Good News?

(excerpted from the revised and expanded edition of
Pronoia Is the Antidote for Paranoia)

You read and hear and see the relentless assault of bad news every day. Would you like to expose yourself to the rest of the story? Would you like to steep yourself in the glorious stories of the human race that the mainstream news are allergic to?

Here are some of the top stories we're following:

- Current human life expectancy, already at age 78 for Americans, is steadily increasing.

- Crime in the U.S. is at its lowest level since it was first officially tracked.

- A Canadian moose can now walk in peace and safety all the way to South America.

- The world's largest private bank, Citigroup, agreed to stop financing projects that damage sensitive ecosystems.

- You have at least a million relatives as close as tenth cousin, and no one on Earth is any further removed than your fiftieth cousin.

- The juvenile crime rate has plummeted to its lowest levels since 1979. Violent crime committed by teenagers is 40 percent lower than it was in 1994.

- With every dawn, when first light penetrates the sea, many seahorse colonies perform a dance to the sun.

For full reports on the above stories, as well as more pronoiac news, tune in to the Pronoia News Network.

And here's how the report looks in the book, with all the pretty pictures and layout.
