    While Fredrickson's quotes might sound kind of useless in the context of this article, she does good work in helping people find ways to live happier, productive lives - and the more people who do that, the better world we all get to live in. The book, "Positivity," she published a few years ago is still selling well - #59 in its category on Amazon as I'm typing this, so clearly people are interested in what she has to say. Heck, she even passes the McCrory test - her book and its profits are stimulating the economy and she's making money off a psych PhD!

    And how much are we paying this "professor"?

    LOL, that's the first thing I thought when I read her quotes in the UNC Gazette. This has to be a joke. For the quote "Love is blind" she said something like "No you actually have to use your eyes to see the other person".

    What??

    Our poor poor children
