Laughter as a Cure to Anything

     I have still to meet a person who does not find pleasure in laughing.

They’re not so sober sighted serious that they’re reading every Jane Brody column on our diet and following it, and so you know they might not make it to 93 maybe just 87 but just have a lot better time doing it."
