Good News of the Week: Safe From Bunnies

George and I were discussing the other day that we would like to have a weekly column dedicated to the good news of the week. When almost every outlet seems to be fixated on the horrible things that are happening in the world, we decided to focus on those good stories that seemingly always get ignored. We put a call out to all our followers to keep us informed of some good stories that they'd like to see printed. While we got a grand total of none, we're hoping that as we go forward, you'll participate. Just email us at

In no particular order, here are the good stories of the week of March 20-26:

These bunnies keep staring at me. They must be rabid!

1. Thanks to an earlier report in The Cooler, there are far less rabid, chocolate bunnies on the streets of Niagara County this morning. According to George Root, he has been inundated with bunnies to be tested. So far, none have been confirmed to be rabid, but as Root says, "It's better to be safe than sorry." George also notes that he will continue to test chocolate bunnies for the ensuing week.

2. Josephine Bacon lost her first tooth on Friday afternoon. It had been loose all week, but Grammy assisted with the final extraction. According the Josephine, the Tooth Fairy left her "one dollar, all for me!" In an interview with the Tooth Fairy, she stated, "I'm glad that the price of teeth have not increased at the rate of inflation." We at The Cooler wholeheartedly agree.

3. Niagara's Watercooler will soon be having a guest columnist joining our ranks. Check our page on Saturdays for a new column about college life from SUNY Stony Brook freshman, Derick Sears.
