A Visit with Santa

A couple of years ago Lucy and I spent a few days taking in the Christmas Spirit as can only be found in New York City. What kind of visit would it have been had we not gone by Macy’s and told Santa what was on our wish list?

Our wish list was granted the following day; a real snow storm dropped several inches of the fluffy stuff all over the place when we drove out the Southern State Parkway. The stone work on all the bridges we went under had small ledges covered with snow, the trees and bushes, the grassy knolls all had snow. When we parked our rental car and came back after only a short while it was covered with snow. Santa did his magic, and all because we simply asked him to make our trip complete.

I haven’t written an article regarding the alleged abuse of power by President Bush as reported by the New York Times in their quest to sell books and destroy the current administration all in one fell swoop. Instead, I have been advising folks to stop by and read a well thought out article written by a fellow who goes by the moniker, Cerberus. Please read his blog via the link provided in the title bar.

You might ask, what has this got to do with a visit with Santa? Well, maybe if we had the optimism of a young child when we asked to be informed, expecting to receive all the relevant data as pertain to this eavesdropping story and possible violations of the 4th amendment we might find that there is more to the story than has been expressed by those who hate the current administration. We might actually receive a truthful accounting rather than the political hack job foisted upon us by the New York Times and the rest of the “alphabet media” outlets and then maybe we would hold back in our finger pointing, our rush to accuse the President as some Senator’s have done.

Merry Christmas or Bah Humbug; the choice is always up to you.
