Blog Credo

The whole aim of practical politics is to keep the populace alarmed (and hence clamorous to be led to safety) by menacing it with an endless series of hobgoblins, all of them imaginary.

Well, This Is Funny

You know, Christmas is just an orgy of stuff.  Food, presents, stuff.  No wonder the Puritans hated it.

I've gotten over the "Look how cute the kids are", too.  Frankly, give me Thanksgiving.  Thanksgiving doesn't come burdened by all these expectations.  Thanksgiving just has to be.  A little turkey, some cranberries, some football and you're good to go.

Jesus wasn't even born in December.
