Beauty skin-deep? – JAM

Someone has said, “Beauty is only skin-deep but ugly is clean to the bone.” Well, there may be some truth to that. A March USAToday article: “The ugly truth”, reports that good looks may improve your economic outlook. Economists at the University of Texas analyzed data from the US, Canada, Germany and Britain and found that beautiful people earn more money than the rest of us and, it is claimed, are generally happier. I’m not sure why they studied this and why it was published. I suppose they want to rub it in the face of all us poor, ugly folks. Well, I object. I may not have as much money as some pretty boys; but when it comes to happiness, I don’t believe Gorgeous George or Handsome Harry has one thing one me! You can’t buy happiness. Happy is the one who trusts God and respects His will. This is Just-A-Minute with Ed Boggess
