Guinea worm is almost eradicated*

*And other good news. 

It’s really easy to focus on all the things that are “getting worse”.  Like, the number of hours per day dedicated to reading about one of the Kardashians, or the stupidity of Trump’s tweets.  But this article takes the long view on a number of important measurements, in the US and WW.  Things like world hunger, homicides rates, and poverty are getting better.  It’s not a comprehensive list, but if you think things are going to “hell in a handbasket”, first take a look at the stats in the article.  And smile.
