2016 was a very good year

It seems like 2016 was a year in which the world has been travelling to hell in a handcart, writes Brian Byrne. Trump, Brexit, Berlin, Nice, Aleppo, and much more.

But as a journalist for more than four decades, I know all too well the editorial truism that bad news sells, good news doesn't. Which means that we can, and do, get presented with a very slanted view of the world around us.

My thanks to cousin Marella Fyffe (Byrne) for pointing me to this list of many of the year's good news stories, as collected by Future Crunch.

Happier Christmas now …
