Who says the media only delivers bad news these days?

Two of the top four most-viewed articles on this year remind us that amid the crime, natural disasters and ugly politics of our world today are wonderful tales of real people doing extraordinary things. They were stories that prompted smiles and self-reflection.

No. 2 most-read was about Electron Boy, whose unforgettable day was made possible by many generous people. And No. 4 celebrates the courage and quick-thinking of a good Samaritan who may have saved the life of a man who passed out while driving.
