Multi-State Christmas Rampage

Not locked in the "War Against Christmas" wing of Gitmo, folks. Instead, Frances and I have been on a multi-state Christmas rampage, spreading Christmas cheer from (Gulf) coast to the Great Lakes, if not, technically, coast-to-coast. And far from "War Against Christmas," these unbelievers proudly celebrate the birth of Christ! And not just by doing our patriotic duty to spend, spend, SPEND. We even went to church--and attended the children's Christmas pageant. Beat that, Christophiles!

(Christmas pageant aside: If the young fella singing "Silent Night" starts on the wrong beat, you should settle in for an ol'-fashioned butchering of that old chestnut.)

Favorite gifts? My momma got me a Browns jersey--an authentic one (#10!), not some cheap replica thing. (Let's all hope this Brady Quinn experiment works out, or I might not be able to wear it, which would be a shame.) And an iPod Shuffle. Yeehaw. And you?

(I know, I know, Christ is the greatest gift of all. But G-d didn't get that just for you, now, did he? I mean, Christ is sort-of a non-excludable public good.)

(Oh, and don't say love. That's for losers.)

New Years resolutions? Mine is to fight an existential war against stupidity. Hey, it's us, or them. No in-between. No fence to sit on. Which side are you on? (Lookin' at you, readers.)

Too bad about the Browns and the playoffs, beaten out by mighty TN. The Titans were just too, too. . . adequate. A more uninspiring 10-6 I've never seen. I expect a decisive loss in SD. But at least they're not stuck at home in Cleveland!

That loss to the Bengals will ring through the ages as a lost opportunity . . . to go 11-5 and one-and-done.

I really was pulling for the Browns this year. No luck.
