Sanford and the Foxx Love Decoded: It is something about a good laugh that heals the soul. Redd Foxx was one of the comics that gave it to you straight and had you in tears laughing. Just like the fox, his comedy was witty and cunning. The art of telling the truth with a little comic relief is how you know you are talking to family. In our culture, it's how we teach without attacking. So laugh more and don't take yourself so seriously: it's how you enjoy this ride called life. Love comes with a gut busting laugh.
