If my girlfriend doesn’t have time to read the news she asks me at the end of the day to tell her only about the good things that happened. Today is a day that comes with some real good news and I cannot wait to tell her.

He has been doing important work in the field of global environmental protection for a long time. For longer than a lot of people would assume.

Today’s news leave me wondering: Should I be sad or happy about the findings of the Supreme Court in 2000. Al Gore as a president wouldn't have had the time to fight for what is so important. On the other hand, I can only imagine what the
