In the general spirit of hysteria and merriment...
The Metro Council of my old home town Nashville has, in response to the "Holiday" hullaballoo around the White House, passed an official resolution declaring that Jesus was "an actual man."
Not only that: "Jesus' life and teachings were and are so extraordinary that they have profoundly impacted the entire world, especially the United States of America."
"...the Metropolitan County Council hereby goes on record as affirming and supporting the use of the words Christmas or Merry Christmas, instead of non-descript, generic terms such as Happy Holidays, Winter Festival, and the like."
I am so relieved.
Have a Merry (Publicly Authorized) Christmas,
