If Jeff Bezos, the billionaire CEO of Amazon, has his way, thousands of drones could soon be hurtling through the airspace above our heads, delivering millions of packages to Amazon's customers. Instead of having to wait the eternity of a day to receive their orders, consumers could get them in 30 minutes, or less.

This week brought the further merging of new and traditional media when Amazon's Jeff Bezos bought the Washington Post for $250 million. The prevailing sentiment from media observers was one of hope -- hope that someone as innovative and entrepreneurial as Bezos can save this valuable part of America's cultural infrastructure. With all the talk this week about preserving great journalism, it's also a valuable opportunity to ponder what's missing from our media landscape. If the purpose of journalism is to give people a better sense of what's happening in their world, reporting only on what's broken isn't enough. How about more on what is working? At a time when our government is deeply dysfunctional, showing how people are having a positive impact in their communities -- and how others can too -- is essential. Let's just hope Bezos succeeds in reviving his new purchase before his 10,000-year clock runs out.
