Good news can come like a breath of fresh air, like oxygen when you're running out of breath. So how about some good news?

Voter ID has been struck down in lots of places - Pennsylvania, Wisconsin, and Arkansas, just in the last few days.

Environmental good news includes upholding EPA authority to control pollution between states, court judgment against fracking, and a new photovotaic with twice the efficiency. Bad as the climate crisis is, fixing it is affordable.

On the equality front, Alaska Supreme Court ruled in favor of tax equality, Chelsea Manning has her name recognized legally, and Kentucky has been told to recognize marriages from other states.

The Senate is steadily clearing out the backlog of appointments under the new rules for appointments.

These are a few of the good news diaries that were republished by the Good News group. If you would like to see these stories in your stream, you can follow them here.

But more good news is always welcome! Feel free to drop us a line when you publish a diary with good news, and we will help spread the word. Or, let us know that you would like to join the group and help find these stories to give them circulation.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
