Good LORD, but a bit of Xmas banter has gotten nasty fast...
While I'm a bit dismayed by Mr. Tonjes' tone as well, is this debate really
what we want in the archive for future generations?
Time to give this a general repose, no? I believe Xmas, Channukah and Kwanza
would all tend towards consigning such unpleasantries to a blissful oblivion,
rather than roasting the chestnuts of our rage in unrelenting flame.
