Good News on a Tough News Day!

The economic news of the day is causing worldwide anxiety. Many in Congress continue to vie for public relations benefit, trying to shift blame to someone else, anyone but themselves. The truth that we are all in this boat together and each share responsibility for the solution is a tough pill to swallow. Few politicians seem able to eat a piece of this humble pie.

To this writer it seems clear that a dose of humility among our governmental leaders is badly needed at this moment, and may I be so bold as to say some turning to a higher power for guidance at this time would be wise on everyone’s part. May I also that people of good will can in this great country collectively solve these problems. Getting past the personal need of some for positive Public Relations Spin is vital to this process and to the solution.

Here are two pieces of good news I know of today: 1)  The NCUA has to pay insurance claims for any failed credit union within seven days according to their customer hotline. 2) While the market (DJIA) is down 630 points at this hour, cleantech leader Raser Technologies’ stock is up today by more than 15%. Cool!

Do you have some good news to share?
