Share Your Happy News

After Tuesday's somewhat somber post, I think it's time for some happy news that syncs up better with all the good stuff Alex has been reporting about Comic-Con.

Thus, I present to you

Happy News is precisely what it sounds like--to quote its slogan, "Real news. Compelling stories. Always positive." Just like most other news sources, there are columns and categories such as Sports, Science & Technology, Health, and Business/Money, but the stories are guaranteed to be some combination of fun, uplifting, and informative. Depressing and trashy are out of the picture.

Happy News gets its material from all over the Internet, including everything from MSNBC to Brigham Young University and The Jerusalem Post. My pick of the week is a story from CNN about how soccer player (or footballer, if you prefer) David Beckham single-handedly increased LEGO sales by 663%.

There's a lot of good news to be found, if you know where to look. Got a great story to share? Post a link in the comments section; we'd love to hear about it.

Here is a happy news item of the geeky variety:

The actor who played Eddie Munster is set to marry his biggest fan. I think this is the first time in history that being a creepily overzealous fan has actually paid off.
