I had no idea some of those ideas where already in clinical trials… I hope never to have to use these techniques, but if I have to, it is great to know that they might be available…!

This station tried bringing some good news too – and where booed for doing so! That seems a bit strange. I notice too that people complain about the ‘bad news’ most programs will bring. And at the same time I get irritated about the ‘non-news’ CNN and a lot of other mainstream outlets bring you… strange, isn’t it that viewers turned away when some positive news came on?
