"A week from today we begin a brand new year
Let us all be hopeful, men & women of good cheer
And resolve to fight against stupidity and fear
It's Christmas morning

And as awful as the world can be we are still alive
And if we're very careful we might well survive
There are cures & solutions & there is compromise
Christmas morning
(Loudon Wainwright III, "Christmas Morning")

Merry Christmas, Scott Adams. And Happy Hanukkah, Happy Kwanzaa, Blessed Yule, Happy Festivus, and have an excellent Decemberween.
