Positive News for Oct. 14th- 20th


A spirited display of leisure hot-air transportation momentarily reinvigorated the nation’s fascination for ballooning, waking an obsession dormant in this country since the late 19th century. The event captivated Americans from all walks of life guided by more than 6 hours of live media coverage and post-flight reports into the following day. While the ballooning craze was over almost as soon as it began, its meager longevity was certainly expected given the waning interest before and after the flight from children closest to the action.

America’s largest bank, Bank of America, has shed its all-powerful corporate image for an approach recognizing the concerns of its customers. As the status of American banking continues to pit powerful banks against people concerned for their financial stability, Bank of America has prepared itself to understand the pain, confusion, and fear associated with trusting a financial system to keep your best interests at heart. Although it is unknown how long Bank of America plans to proceed with their new costumer relation-relations, Americans can expect the strategy to continue as long as Bank of America maintains its previous business practices.

The St. Louis Rams earned a decisive win for their franchise last week escaping the title of professional football’s greatest embarrassment. Despite a 0-5 record the Rams were able to pull an upset on an overwhelming opponent to salvage any remaining shreds of dignity the team hoped to maintain throughout the remainder of the season. It is clear the Rams still have a lot of work ahead of them if they hope to muster a legitimate playoff run but no matter the team’s final record, last week’s success in escaping sure disaster more than constitutes a winning season.
