Some good news

All sorts of folks are lighting up the darkness. Check it:

Were you aware that...?

A coffee cooperative in Minnesota makes money by creating fair trade and cutting out corporate middlemen.

Family farmers in Vermont survive and prosper by going organic and cooperative.

Health clinics in rural New Mexico are community supported and succeed in ways corporate health care and insurance cannot.

A taxi cab cooperative in Madison, Wisc., run by the cabbies, brings in $6 million per year.

A pharmacist in Austin, Texas, works less and accomplishes more since he quit working for a chain and set up a pharmacy that ignores insurance companies and sells the least expensive generic medicine.

Strippers in San Francisco have unionized.

A community bank in Chicago has $5 million in annual profits and has invested more than $2.9 billion in underserved communities.

The rest.
