Everyone is Receiving Their George and Laura XMas Card

Except me.

Since you got yours, you know that "Christmas" is missing from the card. And here is the dear Lyn Nofziger on the subject.

It's regrettable.

When it's Talk Like a Pirate Day, we don't wander about wishing people Happy Talk Like a Chimp Day. That's what Talk Like a Chimp Day is for (or it will be soon if all goes as planned). On Independence Day we don't wish each other Happy Bastille Day. Bastille Day is for the French. In France. On July 14.

If someone said Happy Hanukkah to me I might chortle but I would not be slighted. I can't imagine Bush supporters being insulted by Merry Christmas anymore than the verse of Holy Scripture included.

Ignore Christmas if you like but you can keep your doublespeak.

(Incidentally "doublespeak" is "tablespoon" to my spell checker.)
