Health-care reform is serious business. But couldn’t we all use a laugh?

Two things to check out:

1. Billionaires for Wealthcare

“If we ain’t broke, then don’t fix it,” they say. Below, watch some scenes from the recent DC tea party protests as you listen to the Billionaires for Wealthcare hit song “Let’s Save the Status Quo.” You can even be a billionaire for wealthcare yourself. And their signs are hilarious; my favorites: “Because nothing says ‘freedom’ like denying claims,” and “Let them eat Advil.”

2. Have you seen the new MoveOn PSA featuring Will Ferrell and other famous people?

A few weekends ago, I hiked Monument Mountain with my dear friend Liora. It was a beautiful day—perfect for summit sitting, wandering, talking, tree climbing, and goofiness.

Then, the other day I finally made my way over to East Mountain. There’s a delightfully tucked-away trail down the road, a steep climb, then a ladder up a big rock to a view of Great Barrington, the Berkshire Mountains, and the Catskills beyond. I was in a reflective, contemplating kind of mood, so the solo walk up, lunch hour (and mountain/sky/cloud-gazing) on the rock, and walk down without seeing other humans was perfect. Cell phone photos follow.
