Some Final Christmas Thoughts

Filed from "Owls Nest" near Tamassee, South Carolina.

NBC news was lamenting that it was a "lack luster" holiday shopping season. According to them, sales at "brick and mortar" stores "only" increased 4.5% over last year's figures, while on-line buying went up by some 28%.

Isn't it strange that the traditional media has determined that a "successful" holiday season is one in which people sink themselves into more and more debt each year?

And isn't it stranger that those in the traditional media that would remove Christ from Christmas never talk about deleting the gift-giving?
