“We live in a little suburb called Twelve Bridges. Everything’s a little broken-down, especially the bridges. People don’t make too much money around here, but what comes with that is a different definition of what it means to be well-off. You’re chairman of the board if you need twelve dollars a week and you make twelve dollars a week. If you’ve also got someone within ten minutes’ walk who can make you laugh and someone within a five-minute walk who can help you mourn, you’re a millionaire. If on top of all that you’ve got a buddy or three who’ll feed you delicious things and paint you pictures and dance with you, and another friend who’ll watch your kids so you can go out dancing…that’s the billionaire lifestyle.”

I got an email from my aunt in Sri Lanka the other day. It was a Daily Mail article that claimed Niagara Falls had frozen over. The photos were astounding. I wanted to post them to the Goods, but decided to verify with a more trusted news source (no offense, Daily Mail). That’s when I stumbled on this local news feature from WGRZ-TV’s Dave McKinley. The reporter from Buffalo’s NBC affiliate heads down to the falls to verify and rhymes his entire report, thus spreading joy the world over.
