More Good News from Iraq

MSNBC posts a new story from Iraq and, if you can just set your liberal biases aside, you will notice it is filled with good news.

First, there's this:

Each morning, high school student Achmed Hammed reads the newspaper obituaries looking for friends who have died.


See ... betcha didn't know the newspaper was being delivered daily.

You should also notice the upbeat economic news:

[Suhail Gergis has] been making coffins since 1983, and for the first time he cannot keep up with demand.

"We turn on the generator and keep working until late at night," he says.

They are building a coffin for a small child. In Iraq, in this chaos, this business has the biggest increase in manufacturing here.


Even better is the government's work toward an accurate media:

On Monday morning, an Iraqi NBC producer, his face hidden for his protection, and his camera crew were caught in crossfire at the morgue. On one side, Shiites from the Ministry of Health, on the other, Sunnis from the Ministry of Electricity. Our tape was confiscated.


Way to nip that lying videotap in the bud!
