We're from the Government...

And we're here to "help" you:

"Amid a wave of research on the subject, the federal government is seeking ways to measure what some have called gross national happiness ... a panel of experts in psychology and economics ... began convening in December to try to define reliable measures of “subjective well-being.”

Oh frabjous day!

What's that you ask? Who's footing the bill for this groundbreaking, critical research project?

Well, you are, of course:

"Funded by the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services ... including Nobel laureate Daniel Kahneman"

Look for HHS Secretary Shecantbeserious to announce the new "Happiness Mandate" to be covered by all health insurance policies. Although I suppose one could argue that the new convenience items birth control requirements fit the bill.

The beatings will continue until morale improves.
