re: A Little Good News in Iraq is Hard to Find, unless you write a blog.

Dear MSM: Word on the street is that you're having a hard time covering nothing but carnage and death in Iraq. It seems like everywhere you go, you find suicide bombers, exploding cars, and dying civilians.

Well, I feel for you. It must be really hard to be in country and not be able to find one single good news story for which America can feel good about as we fight in the Global War on Terror.

So, here, let me help you out. I googled "good news from Iraq" in gee, guess what? I found some! Total research time - 30 seconds.

Here's "a few" for you to cover, if you're not too busy with "if it bleeds, it leads":
