... kids don't nec­es­sar­ily get an eye exam if they need an eye exam mostly be­cause it is not con­ve­nient for the par­ents to be able to do that.”

Vice pres­i­dent for U.S. Op­ti­cal at Wal­mart Bynum ad­mits it: He's hu­man. He would rather read good sto­ries about him, or the city, than bad ones.

“I had my whole fam­ily on Christ­mas morn­ing and even man­aged to burn scram­bled eggs, which most peo­ple can't be­lieve you can do that,” he said. (I've done that.)

He hoped ev­ery­one would no­tice “all that was good. But the eggs is what ev­ery­one still re­mem­bers and talks about. So you don't want peo­ple to only fo­cus on the bad things when you work so hard at try­ing to do right. You want peo­ple to fo­cus on the pos­i­tive things.”

Re­porters of­ten are skep­ti­cal by na­ture and have a watch-dog role to play in gov­ern­ment. The pub­lic needs us to take that role se­ri­ously. Some­times, that means re­port­ing on top­ics that make lead­ers un­com­fort­able.
