Father's Happier, Getting Less

South Hadley, MA – Still haven't made it out for that special something for Dad on Father's Day? It's O.K., Dad won't mind.

She finds that although Dad's get less and celebrate less, they are more satisfied with their day than Mom's are with theirs. Arlen Cellana asked Gilbert why she chose this topic and what she hoped to learn.
