Green Room - Week 10 - Day 7

People are always talking about how there is "so much bad news in the world today", when actually there is just more time to fill and greater access to information than ever before, to fill it. Plus, "cat found in tree" isn't as interesting of a headline as "What did people do to cause cat to flee?????"

There IS one piece of good news out there though, that I personally haven't seen one negative comment about. (I'm SURE they are out there, it's the internet, but I personally haven't seen them*) The Reading Rainbow Kickstarter campaign raised over a MILLION DOLLARS IN 11 HOURS!

Kids! Books! Kids reading books! Yay!

*and just like that, I went to find a link to the story, and here was this: http://www.washingtonpost.com/news/the-intersect/wp/2014/05/28/you-might-want-to-reconsider-that-donation-to-the-reading-rainbow-kickstarter/?wprss=rss_lifestyle

Ah, that's more like it. Thanks internet, you never disappoint!

How has the Internet managed to NOT disappoint YOU today?

***

Speaking of "never disappointing" - the Topic thread is slowly filling up: http://therealljidol.livejournal.com/741490.html and I DO mean "slowly". I expand deadlines to keep more people in, and more people simply find new ways to submit last minute. ;)

Also - there are still a few spots open in The Killing Floor: http://therealljidol.livejournal.com/743022.html and of course, you should definitely be going there to offer constructive criticism.
