Thought you might be interested Thursday: Happiness

Another fascinating story brought, as heard recently on WAMU: The Pursuit: A History Of Happiness.   Here's what you'll be treated to in the hour-long program:
How have Americans defined success, prosperity and contentment? How have they carried out their pursuit of those ends? And how does the course of history square with their lofty goals? Brian, Ed and Peter mull these questions over in stories across the centuries — from a mesmerist who urged his followers to think happy thoughts to an early hit in the recording industry that will just crack you up.

When the guys say they will "just crack you up," they are referring to what I think is a terribly odd segment―Laugh It Up, Fuzzball.   The other segments are outstanding.   They are: Comma Chameleon, So Happy Together, Single Serving, Don’t Worry — Be Happy!, and Chasing The Brass Ring.
