News Flash: The Vast Majority of People Are Sane, Sensible, and Kind

Despite, or to accompany, the news in the world media recently (the horror at Virginia Tech; the idiocy of Don Imus), we would like to present the news that the vast majority of people in the world are sane, sensible, and kind.

- the Vermont state senate today voted for the impeachment of Bush and Cheney.

- a carpenter at Cornell University donated his time before work this morning to hanging a back door on the new home of the Ithaca Breast Cancer Alliance.

- the Alternatives Federal Credit Union in Ithaca has a program for low-income people called the Individual Development Account. If the individual saves $1,000 in the course of a year, the credit union contributes $2,000 to the account.

- a young mother in Wegman's today was exceedingly patient with a 2-year old.
