It’s a little crazy, it this YouTube world in which we live, to think that at one time somebody said something that was not captured in 640×480/30fps, to be preserved for all eternity. For the love of TCP/IP — “Leave Britney Alone” is the punchline of a radio commercial — popular enough to believe that 50% of people driving in their cars will get the joke. Ugh.
Anyhow, ’tis the season that my grandfather would always say, “Kids and Christmas — BAH!” The twinkle in his eye, the Santa-like grin, showed that he didn’t mean it the way it sounded. It was as much a part of Christmas as anything I can remember. Good times.
