Don’t worry. Be happy. But – really – how happy are you?
Well, according to a study released a few weeks ago, Vancouver was the 74th happiest city in the country.
This ranking didn’t sit all that well with some of my friends. At least those I heard from when I posted the ranking on my Facebook page.
“Well, they certainly did not talk to me!” said Scott Campbell, my former boss at The Columbian. Scott is an all-around great guy and has always been a staunch supporter of Vancouver.
“Who did they interview? Please share the questions,” commented former Vancouver Mayor Royce Pollard. Pollard is another staunch supporter of the city. He once was so upset at what he perceived as a slight to Vancouver – a local Starbucks was selling Portland souvenir coffee mugs – he went there, bought the Portland mug, took it outside and smashed it on the sidewalk.
Pollard is also a great guy, despite occasionally bleeding a little University of Alabama crimson.
