Well in 'Always Look On The Bright Side Of Life' mode I guess that this is "good news" in the sense that it is actually newsworthy that a 15 year old Wisconsin high school student died of a drug overdose. This clearly means that this is not a common occurrence, at least not in Milwaukee. . .

R.I.P. Maddie Keiffer, may your well publicized death due to a drug overdose help to prevent other good people from dying young in the same regrettable way.
