Christmas is easy to dump on – and I’ve been as guilty of that as anyone. It should be a sacred holiday, but it’s been turned into an orgy of consumerism. This year, there are so many news items that deserve reporting and discussion, ranging from the NRA’s response to the Connecticut shooting to the fiscal cliff to Prince Harry getting his first official “kill” in Afghanistan. It’s all so … not Christmassy. And the only defenders of Christmas appear to be the ahistoric lunatics at Fox Nooze.
Let me be true to the motto “I don’t break news, I fix it” – and let me make that a subtle pitch for your contributions to keep this humble blog going. Christmas needs a lot this year. It needs defenders, it needs reinvigorating – it needs to be fixed. Let’s do it.
