A Little Good News Today

最近我總覺得讀新聞是一件很累的事。無論是報章上還是網絡上的新聞。

在這個草木皆兵的國家,所有的事情都和種族、政治掛鈎。這樣的新聞讀了讓人産生無力感。

政治人物似是而非、模糊焦點、轉移視綫的各種言論,看多了會讓民智退化。

政府高官的白天説夢話、睜眼説瞎話,極力發揮「官字兩個口、高官四個口」的高超本領,讀多了真的會讓人得憂鬱症。

於是我想起好久好久以前我很喜歡的一首歌:“A Little Good News Today"。

Just once how I'd like to see the headline say
"Not much to print today, can't find nothin' bad to say", because

Nobody was assassinated in the whole Third World today
And in the streets of Ireland, all the children had to do was play
And everybody loves everybody in the good old USA
We sure could use a little good news today

Nobody robbed a liquor store on the lower part of town
Nobody OD'ed, nobody burned a single buildin' down
Nobody fired a shot in anger, nobody had to die in vain
We sure could use a little good news today


不過今天真的看到"a little good news":內閣提議廢除官方文件種族欄。
