Barnes and Noble's new boss is James Daunt, who rescued the UK's Waterstones

This is good news. When I heard B&N had been purchased by a private equity firm, I thought of Sears/Kmart and assumed the buyers intended to suck it dry, take the money, and run. But this indicates that at least somebody who's in a position to call some shots actually cares about trying to save the company.

Once Mr. Daunt commences his overhaul of Barnes & Noble, he will again try to turn a large chain into what looks and feels like a collection of independent bookstores. Again, he will do battle with a culture of stifling uniformity.

“Each store was told: ‘This is your display. This book should be in this exact spot,’” recalled Steve Galindo, an Oklahoma resident who worked at three Barnes & Noble stores over 17 years before being laid off in February. “Individuality was often something you got in trouble for.”

Barnes & Noble’s staff needs to feel a sense of agency, Mr. Daunt said.

David Byrne has launched a website at [url]reasonstobecheerful.world[/url]. I haven't read anything beyond the headlines yet, but its purpose seems to be much the same purpose as this thread.

And Byrne himself is always a reason to be cheerful.

Latest Papal Synod moves serious proposal to allow married priests and female Deacons

The Catholic Church under Francis hasn't always got things right lately, and as always they're still centuries behind (to which my response is usually "it's the Catholic Church; being behind the times is what they do."), but this will be a really nice positive move forward if it goes through.

It wouldn't stop the problem of creepy molesting priests entirely, but allowing normal married people as ministers would probably be the single biggest practical thing they could do to help prevent that (that, and stop covering for the ones who get found out... but they're at least working on that too, even if they're still backsliding sometimes).

Like I said, it's the Catholic Church. Baby steps. And this is a pretty big baby step.
