The Happy Issue! 

As we inch closer to the next Great Depression, is there a chance we’re getting … happier?


Yes, we’re serious: a collection of stories devoted solely to being happy — in the midst of the worst economic crisis most of us have known. But it’s not just bizarre timing. It’s also highly uncharacteristic of us, no matter what the month or year. When have you ever heard of a newspaper like us focusing on good news? We’re an industry obsessed with rather unhappy stories, from governmental abuses to political corruption, horrific crime to doomsday projections. Yadda, yadda, yadda. We’re sick of it. Let’s take a break, huh?
