Good News - #9

This week's Good News stories have the common theme of cooperation of one kind or another. In my opinion, cooperation is a form of inter-personal phenomenon that removes suspicion and distrust. (Due to the dynamic nature of news I do not know how long any of the links will remain active).

The United States enjoys some of the lowest gasoline prices in the world, yet its dependence on foreign oil may soon become a nightmare. This, according to the headline, has created An Unlikely Meeting Of the Minds. That is to say environmentalists and republicans are finding common ground .

In the volatile politics of the middle east it is wonderful news to hear that Israelis currently have two Arab heroes. This story shows how cooperation toward a common goal can create feelings of goodwill.

There are approximately 3,500 non-functioning oil platforms in the Gulf of Mexico. Now the federal government is looking at converting these oil platforms into fish farms. This is not a problem free prospect, but I think it is a move in the right direction.

Yes, cooperation can take many forms, and when this cooperation is for something good it can have a reach beyond its grasp.
