Hope n' Change has been considering the institution of "Good News Fridays" in which we help kick off your weekend with happy, uplifting, optimistic news items. Unfortunately, this is unlikely to become a regular feature because it doesn't seem like there is much good news lately, and the odds of it happening on any given Friday are about as likely as Barack Obama spontaneously singing "God Bless America" at one of his $100,000 a plate fundraisers.
That being said, there was good-ish news from Australia yesterday, after some 800 federal and state police officers raided and rounded up a group of Islamic State terrorists who were about to move on their plans to start grabbing ordinary Aussies off the streets, behead them, then distribute videos of the brutal murders on social media sites.
But Hope n' Change has a better idea.
Now that these wankers have been caught, how about putting them into the ring with really skilled boxing kangaroos, and then release the video of the terrorists getting the ever-loving crap knocked out of them!
Not only would the terrorists lose face (perhaps literally) in the eyes of the world, but it would make for some great video. In a world that desperately needs good news, it's time something went viral other than ebola.
