What the World Needs Now 

Besides love? A good guffaw. And one opportunity is the Vermont "Laugh In" event, for World Laughter Day on Sunday, May 3. The Richmond Free Library, at 201 Bridge Street, is allowing silence to be broken "to contribute to the international movement of world peace through laughter."

Whatever it takes, right?

Organizers are hoping for at least 100 folks to show up and laugh their asses off--you know, the 100th monkey theory. But if you go you'll be in the cosmic company of 100s of thousands of participants around the globe who participate in this "laughter yoga movement," conceived in 1995 by a Indian medical doctor by the name of Madan Kataria. Laughter is the best medicine, he probably figured.

From what we heard about the last local event, in Burlington, the giggles really were contagious. Sure beats the swine flu.
