The Muse and Whirled Retort November 2003
On Halloween I cynically remarked that tomorrow starts the Christmas shopping season, and I'll be damned if the next day we didn't startseeing Christmas decorations along the thin highways of fat America. Have you seen the battery-operated Nativity scene they have for sale in all the truck stops? Baby Jesus wiggles in the manger, while Mary and Joseph do the Watusi as the three wise men sing "Heard It Through the Grapevine?"
What would Jesus buy?
So with that in mind Christmas season is right around the corner and there is only one Whirled Retort between now and Christmas so.. here's a Christmas gift idea – how about a copy of "Live From the Wholly Stolen Empire"? It is a great gift idea for your teenaged children that think you listen to too much Pete Seeger. Or that annoying uncle that quotes Sean Hannity at holiday meal time. Or the newspaper boy who wrote the website to the New York Times in magic marker on the side of your mail box.
