Two items from the inbox: Mary points to the NYT story Suicide Found to Be Less Likely in Heavier People, which reports on a study that claims that the fatter you are, the less likely you are to off yourself.
Meanwhile, Mom read this nugget on Maeve Binchy's blog:
"…if you laugh for 20 seconds, it's better exercise than if you were to row for a whole three minutes."
Does that mean that if you laugh a lot you're more likely to end it all? Seems like a risk worth taking.
