Happy People Watch Less TV, "go to Church"

The NYT notes that a recent study concludes that people who describe themselves as "happy," one of the three basic rights as Americans we all have [life, liberty and the pursuit of......], watch less TV. After watching UMiami get slaughtered on ESPN last night, I can see why.

Seriously, the NYT naturally downplays the concomitant conclusion, that people who "socialize, go to church, volunteer..." are happier. Except for football and other sports, I watch little TV nowadays. The advent of High Def has made that more pleasurable, but my distaste for everything except Man From Mars and Gossip Girl remains strong, except for Jeopardy.

Maybe I'm happier than most....?
