I was speaking with a friend the other day and we were wondering if the media is feeding the economic trouble we are in by only reporting doom and gloom.  When I turn on the news it just seems like the world is ending.  I understand that we are in a bit of financial trouble, but we can get through it and in tough times many people do amazing things.  You have stories of great charity works and new businesses starting up.  Why can’t we focus on these things?
