Obviously I live in Colorado and hear Colorado news, but does it seem lately to any one OUTSIDE of Colorado that we are in the news a LOT more than usual? First with the wildfires all summer, then the Aurora Shooting incident, now with the Jessica Ridgeway case, and not to mention all the stupid political stuff and the first Presidential debate last week... I just feel like our beautiful state has been in the news too much for so many BAD things :( I hope its just me and not what it really looks like to everyone out of Colorado :-/
SO, what things has your state/area been in the news for lately? Good things I hope :)

OH is one of the battleground states in the election, so we get our fair share of political attention. Political ads, political calls, etc. It's annoying! Plus, OH & MI have a lot of the auto plants so they are in the focus b/c of the auto bailout - who wanted it, who didn't.

IDK. Bad things happen all over the place. I don't look at the debate as a negative, it was just a location. It wasn't a tragedy or anything. The other things, sure they are tragedies but those things happen in other places too. But I can see how so much attention would be focused on local events and happenings.
