A hearty laugh


I don’t actually watch the morning shows, and certainly not local TV news, but if I did I might have noticed a surprising video. It’s of my friends Marcus McArthur’s son Micah. And from what I can tell from Marcus’ Facebook feed, Micah’s video has been making the rounds: “Good Morning America,” CNN, FOX News, local news. Here’s the back story about Marcus McArthur’s son from KSDK 5 in St. Louis:

McArthur says he’s finishing up his doctorate at SLU and applying for professor jobs. When he received yet another rejection letter he ripped it in half and baby Micah started laughing uncontrollably, so he started ripping credit card statements and the sweet sounds of laughter continued.

One of the more surprising places Marcus has thus far found this video of his son Micah, which went viral after having about 1,000 views 10 days ago, and the reason I felt emboldened to embed it here, is TurnToIslam.com—and now, presumably, The God Blog.
