Good News Overnight Open Thread

This Open Thread is for good news, no matter how trivial. Sourpusses should comment elsewhere.

My contribution:

I was reading stories off a Pittsburgh site about the Steelers’ win over Jacksonville, when I noticed something peculiar. At the bottom of the page it had categories for ‘Today’s Most-Read Articles’, and while four of the five were articles about the Steelers and their hard-fought win over Jacksonville, the #1 was not. Furthermore, it was also #1 for ‘Today’s Most-Sent Articles’.

What was it? An editorial column about Obama’s connections to Weather Underground terrorist Bill Ayres.

In a Steelers-crazy city like Pittsburgh, that’s saying something.
