What news should make it to the cover page?

Do we want to wake up to news about violence, or inspiring reports about people who've made a difference? I'd prefer the latter. Looks like President Kalam prefers that too. In his words...

“I was in Tel Aviv once and I was reading the Israeli newspaper. It was the day after a lot of attacks and bombardments and deaths had taken place. The Hamas had struck. But the front page of the newspaper had the picture of a Jewish gentleman who in five years had transformed his desert land into an orchard and a granary. It was this inspiring picture that everyone woke up to. The gory details of killings, bombardments, deaths, were inside the newspaper, buried among other news.”
