    I am hearing a report on China Radio International that public hospitals in Buenos Aires (Argentina) with pediatric departments are now required, by law, to have clowns on staff. This is no joke: http://www.usatoday.com/story/news/world/2015/10/08/buenos-aires-adopts-clown-law-cheer-sick-kids-worlds-first/73346816/

    I have to ask;

    Was the “no joke” at the end of your post intentional?

    The Republican presidential candidates could actually do some good.

    Indeed, the no joke was intentional. I was laughing out loud as I heard the story on the radio. According to the CRI story, however, the decision to require the clowns was based on scientific studies that demonstrated that on average, children’s recovery time in the hospital is shortened when clowns are present.
