WASHINGTON This is definitely the time of year when we need fewer frowns and more smiles.
Here is my shortened list of people who make me smile.
John Legend, the composer, musician and singer, makes me smile. He is from my hometown of Springfield, Ohio, and he continues to give back with free concerts, unhailed good deeds and a beautiful performing arts theater. My best friend from kindergarten, Jeannine, who supervised his homeschooling as a school administrator, said he remains one of the brightest and politest students she ever encountered. Oh, and by the way, People magazine just named him the sexiest man alive.
