My personal musings about anything that gets on my radar screen--heavily dominated by politics.


AP via the Today Show: Children Happy 

In more news, children whose parents are still married are happier than those whose aren't, and children who participate in religious life are happier than those who don't.

Of course, I'm being a little sarcastic. This poll is NOT news to anybody who is raising a child--OF COURSE they're happier with both parents, and OF COURSE being religious makes them happier. This, in and of itself, is not news.

What might be news, however, is that the media reports all this as such surprising information. As if it never occurred to anybody in an editor's booth that traditional lives tend to be happier. Or, to put it more correctly, traditional lives ARE traditional lives because they tend to make those living them happier.

Mon dieu! HReeally?

Now, if we could just teach these kids something useful in school, we might be able to harness that positivity into making good changes in the world.
