I know much of the content shared in this class is much heavier, but I thought this might be a nice light hearted article to start everyone's thursday. Basically dryer lint has been collected from all over the United States, and will be weighed by using a crane to hold it. This is in an effort to set the guiness world record for the heaviest ball of lint. They will celebrate by lighting it on fire, with of course the fire deparment on site. How do we think the injections of articles like these could potentially lighten the rhetoric around news, and lessen the negative connotation?
