Still busy with all kinds of stuff that must get done before the end of the year. Thank goodness everything is melted and back to normal.
If you're going to have to make an apology about plagiarizing material, your apology should not be plagiarized.
Netflix coming out with a Romney trailer. Incidentally, it's been pretty amusing to see Ann Romney whine about losing.
LOVE Alexander Skarsgard. Saw the movie "What Maisie Knew" and it was so terrific.
Florida School to change name-no more Nathan Forrest Bedford (incidentally, is Bedford, TX named after that guy?)
Mark Zuckerberg getting sued.
And another creepy thing about Facebook

And Now, I LOVE this Happy Holidays commercial from Apple
Hah! How many displays can you put in the Florida capital?
Christmas characters from around the world, including Krampus
christmas is a secular holiday, not a religious one.
- Nearly half (49%) of Americans agree stores and businesses should greet their customers with “happy holidays” or “season’s greetings” instead of “merry Christmas” out of respect for people of different faiths. However, a substantial minority (43%) disagree. Support for saying “happy holidays” or “season’s greetings” is up slightly since December 2010, when 44% preferred that businesses use less religious greetings.
- White evangelical Protestants are significantly more likely than other religious groups to say stores should use “merry Christmas” instead of “happy holidays,” with 62% saying they prefer that businesses use the explicitly religious greeting. White mainline Protestants and Catholics are more divided. Among white mainline Protestants, 46% say they prefer businesses to use “merry Christmas” but 43% disagree. Half (50%) of Catholics say they prefer stores use “happy holidays”, but a substantial minority (44%) disagree. Majorities of minority Protestants (55%) and the religiously unaffiliated (58%) say stores should use “happy holidays” rather than the more religious greeting.
- The political divisions are stark. Roughly 6-in-10 (61%) Republicans favor using “merry Christmas” over “happy holidays,” while nearly as many (58%) Democrats say the opposite.
Another baloney hoax for people to get outraged over.
No Reason for the Season--Secular christmas holiday
Most of the classic songs and movies that celebrate Christmas don't even mention God or Jesus. Santa doesn't check church attendance to decide whether he's going to give a child a present—he checks whether she's been naughty or nice. He's the perfect secular judge of moral fiber. To say that the secularists injure the Christmas spirit is much like the claim that two men getting hitched will besmirch the sanctity of marriage. Why should the way I mark Christmas bother anyone? Christians appalled by my secular holiday will no doubt argue that I am depriving myself of the greater joy that comes with accepting Jesus into your heart. But I'm not attempting to take away anyone's right to go to church or to display a Nativity scene. All I need to celebrate Christmas is a tree, stockings, baked goods, some people I love, and some gifts to give (and, yes, receive).
You know that cross out in LA Jolla that site on government land? Having it there is unconstitutional.
