Quote of the week

"Why... is the phrase 'Happy holidays' so insufferable to Christian fundamentalists, but not the vulgar, surfeiting exploitation of Christ's name to sell smokeless ashtrays, dessert toppings, Droid phones and trampolines? I'm not a theologian but I think the Gospels are pretty clear that Jesus was no fan of merchants."

~ Dan Neil in the Los Angeles Times

Though I'm sure he loved independently-owned businesses. Buy local this holiday, er, Christmas!
