Are These the 20 Best Stand-Up Comics of All Time?

“Rolling Stone” put together a list of ‘The 50 Best Stand-Up Comics of All Time.’  They say they considered, “artistic merit, technical proficiency, sense of timing, quality of their written material, their delivery, and degree of influence.”   And they mostly focused on modern day comics, which basically means they weren’t interested in actually researching comedians outside the past 40 or 50 years, but they still wanted to call it a list of the best of “ALL TIME”.  (???)   Anyway, here’s the Top 20:   1.  Richard Pryor 2.  George Carlin 3.  Lenny Bruce 4.  Louis C.K. 5.  Chris

The Key to a Happy Marriage Is, When the Guy Likes His In-Laws

Are you wondering if your boyfriend is marriage material?  Here’s a hint:  If he’s ever said, “Wow, I sure do hate your mom”, then no, he’s not.   A new study out of the University of Michigan just found that married couples are happier if the guy has a good relationship with his wife’s parents.  It’s much less important for the woman to get along with her husband’s parents.   The researchers think it’s because an adult woman tends to be closer to her parents than a man, so when her husband likes them, that eliminates a potentially huge source
