You hit it right. "Nice" stories rarely draw ratings. One can watch any news show daily(all of them might be better) and likely add any meaningful nice stories up on one hand. Those you do see are mostly just pablum(oh the cute kitten chasing the ball of yarn) stuck at the end of local telecasts to fill a short show.

Thoughtful commentary, Jeff. Thanks for giving us a view from the people who live and work in your city.

Thanks, Elaine. I have enough experience with journalism to understand that no story is going to please every interested party...but also enough to know that sometimes a journalist's convictions going in can shade the story that comes out. I suspect that's what happened in this case.
