Chances are that you could not escape this past week's news ... almost all bad.

From the BP oil spill and its danger to wildlife and fishing fleets, resulting in the loss of thousands of livelihoods, to the roller coaster ride on Wall Street and the explosive financial meltdown in Greece. It has been, at the very least, a depressing start to May. Add the massive flooding in Nashville and the bomb threats in New York .... you get the picture.

Jon Stewart's Daily Show took advantage of the week's top stories to pull together the video that follows:

In contrast to Stewart's report, this music video sung by Anne Murray provides a better perspective and gauge of feelings across the country. How little the world has changed since it was first written in 1983!
