No News is Good News

Father Peter tonight was comparing Christmas to Easter.  This led to looking at Easter as "Good News."  It occurred to me that people are always bemoaning the fact that good news never makes the news.  All you ever hear about is the bad news.

Think about this.  The reason the bad news is news, is because it's out of the ordinary.  The ordinary is good news.

If the ordinary news wasn't the usual good news...yikes!  That would mean that bad news was the usual and the news would then have to be the "good news."

We wouldn't want that.  Let's keep it the way it is.  Good news as usual.  Same old, same old.
