The City of Worcester celebrates World Smile Day this Friday!

Last year the free city celebration was held at the library…this is the poster for the 2015 celebration…

I think this REM tune should be Worcester’s World Smile Day theme song. REM is a great American band that’s given the world so many songs about so many human feelings! Plus, this music video is tres sweet!

I’ve been listening to REM since I was a kid at UMass Amherst. Below is one of my favorite REM tunes, from one of my favorite REM albums, AUTOMATIC FOR THE PEOPLE: Night Swimming. Beautiful.

Not so Smiley a day

Why would Mr. Ball celebrate his dad and World Smiley Day by using the elephants of Ringling Bros. Circus? Ringling Bros. PR folks are so savvy and Mr. Ball and the other media folks in town are so gullible.

This needs to be stopped.

I am trying to reach Mr. Ball …

Protests anyone?
