CNN is showing something as unTV’ish as can be – they are celebrating a good stories and good people. No killings and disaster tonight!!!!! Heroes is all about normal people who makes a difference – read more at CNN.com/heroes

And also read about the worlds coolest (and luckiest) nanny

And suddenly I remember the founder of CNN – Mr. UberCOOL – Ted Turner:

In 1998, Turner pledged to donate $1 billion of his then $3 billion to United Nations causes, and created the United Nations Foundation to administer the gift. The foundation “builds and implements public-private partnerships to address the world’s most pressing problems, and broadens support for the UN through advocacy and public outreach.” In 2006, the foundation delivered its billionth dollar to UN causes — $600m of which came from Turner and $400m from public and private partners. Turner has pledged to use the remaining $400m of his commitment to leverage additional funds for UN causes and activities.
