Not All Bad  
On a day when the first three topics I noticed in the Guardian on line were -
UK economy to be hardest hit in developed world

Care home nurse charged with three murders

Women's mental health deteriorates as one in five experience common disorders

it was nice to find some good news - the BBC is to put the Nation's oil paintings on line - that is every one of the 200,000 oil paintings in public ownership .Also Radio 4 is working with the British Museum on a complementary online project for its 100-part series, 'A History of the World in 100 Objects', due for transmission in February next year; this will tell the history of the world through objects from the museum's collection.

Damn! You beat me to the question!!!! But I have another one anyway.... how come there's three bad news stories, two indifferent ones and no good ones?????

And on a side note... I have to ask if being able to access online art is considered good news - when does my government funded computer arrive with my free broadband connection?

I appreciate that an awful lot of people are online now, but, not all of the population can access the net anytime just yet.

I's say art on line is relatively good news as a month's broadband connection costs less than the train fare from here to any outpost of civilisation.

The Independent - good question. I checked it out today to see if the news looked any better.
We'll get poorer faster than since Attlee's time
is rather grim but I see a ray of hope in
Russia calls off plan for missiles in Europe
- we may be impoverished but we won't be wiped out.
