Swinging Dreidel

I have a great post about watching our kids grow up, rattling around in my head. The intriguing combination of still wanting to protect them from the world and the slightly malevolent vindication that comes when they begin to learn you aren't quite as big an idiot as they always thought.

I have another about the "war on Christmas", also rattling around up there. The right's obsession with the fact that the rest of us want to oppress them somehow, when really, all we'd like is to not be treated the way they are saying we are treating them. 

Mostly, though, I have an hour to get out of the house and make my bus ~ and I'm only on my first cup of coffee. The rest will have to wait. 

Those are Pobble Thoughts. That and a buck fifty will get you coffee.

Your country's continuing fear of Karl Marx is astonishing. I am having trouble coming to terms with some of the things I am hearing in American news. I half expect to hear someone start shouting about the Domino Theory again.

btw, how many Americans watch Canadian news?
