After all this time I should no longer be amazed at the quality of your readership, nor the respondents’ collective smarts; it’s wonderful to know that there really are some thinking people left.

It won’t take long for conservatives to scratch this presidential wannabe off their 2008 scorecard.
The American Christmas, like the songs that celebrate it, makes room for everybody under the rainbow. Is that why so many people seem to be hostile to it?
