A common saying that newspaper publishers have said for decades and still rings true is that, “Bad news comes in our door everyday, it’s the good news that’s hard to find.” The spirit of that statement basically illustrates the fact that the cops and courts beat generates more stories each and every day, than say our health or government beats.

We’ve all been sympathetic at one time or another for children who were born and raised in what we’d consider less than fortunate conditions. Remember those commercials asking for donations for starving and malnourished babies born in far off places? Those TV bites would literally tear at our heartstrings.
