Grand Rapids "Laugh Fest" reminds how important laughter is to just about everything

I wonder if my city, Lansing, could take a lesson from Grand Rapids where they are opening a "Laugh Fest" this week.  Inspired by the late comedian Gilda Radner, the event emphasizes the importance of laughing to dealing with and healing a disease.

I wonder how it could affect life in a struggling city like Lansing.  Would our City Council be a more productive body if they could sit down and openly laugh with each other?  

Check this story from WKAR by Scott Pohl where he interviews the head of the event that will bring in well-known comedians from around the world.  And, there's one doctor, Patch Adams.  Remember him?  Robin Adams played him in a movie who believed that laughter was vital to a paitent's healing process.
