GOOD NEWS WATCH….Just so you know, the BBC is reporting that talks with North Korea are showing a “hint of progress.” Elsewhere, the LA Times says that public opinion in Iran is shifting and “signals that a broad range of Iranians hope to avoid an all-out confrontation.”

To be honest, neither story is all that heartening if you read through the whole thing, but good news is in such short supply that I figured I’d link to them anyway. Enjoy it while you can.
