A Christmas Thought
[Comments enabled]

First, any politician who spouts anything about Christmas in a religious context needs to be the recipient of a pile of horse**** in a gift box.  Oh wait, someone already did that with our Treasury Secretary.  It's a good start; long live the First Amendment.

Thus my first Christmas wish is that the rest of the political class get enough of these that they have to be delivered by front-end loaders.  And asteroids.

My second is that the people of this nation wake up from their toper, but I know better.  After all one need merely see "what matters" this time of year on display in every town in the country to figure that out.  Amish excepted, of course.  Speaking of which I have a special Christmas wish for Wood County, WI: May everyone in the county government get an asteroid down their chimney of sufficient size to level their house.  

I could write a little treatise as I have in prior years about how Christmas actually wound up in December -- but nobody cared in those years and won't today either.

So therefore, enjoy the day.  I won't ruin it for 'ya, but I hope you don't mind if I crack a smile at the Grump Tree I was given this year (and yes, it will look nice when planted in my yard in another week or so) as it seems rather appropriate to me.

Merry Christmas
