The Simple Pleasure of a Good Laugh


As we head toward a four-day weekend, our much-appreciated October Break, let’s recall the simple pleasure of a good laugh. There is good research about the short- and long-term benefits of laughter to our health. As long ago as 1976 (ancient history to our students), author Norman Cousins swore that watching Marx Brothers movies and reading humor contributed to his successful fight against cancer–and the New England Journal of Medicine took him seriously.
