Although it's been said, many times, many ways...

Merry Christmas to all of you!
May your day be merry and bright!

The house is a mess, it's time for some cleanin'.
The last of the gifts I'm still a'needin,
The cupboard is bare, to the store I must go.
Thank God the forecast calls for no snow.

And then it's a week filled with family and friends,
Good food, good cheer, and a whirlwind sans end.
The energy it takes to add to this space
Believe me, it doesn't exist in this place.

So 'till after the New Year, I'm off on a break.
Get me more caffeine - I must stay awake.
May your holiday be jolly and your new year sublime.
Don't worry -- I won't show up in prime time.

And best wishes for a wonderful 2006!

Enjoy the cruise

Frank J., the godfather of the Carnival of Comedy, is hosting this week. I'm there... again.

A wish for 23 January

Quick hits

* Tucker Carlson is a jerk. But don't buy Media Matters for America's thinking, either... that's a cousin of Moveon.
* Prediction: If Paul Martin Jr is re-elected, the fence plans kick into high gear. And co-operation goes down.
* I'm not real comfortable with this sex-selection stuff. It may be legal, but so's abortion and I'm not real comfortable with that, either.
* Wednesday will be a very important day in determining just how committed Canada is to the war on terror. If this Khadr gets bail, then we'll know.
Posting has been light, as some of you have noted. I passed another milestone on Sunday... yeah, another birthday. Don't ask which one. The only hint I'll offer -- Sammy Hagar couldn't drive it.
Posting will continue to be light through the holiday season.
