Yes, Merry Christmas from the Dread Pirate Roberts and me.
Merry Christmas! Let nothing you dismay, as the song says.
A Merry Christmas to you all. Keep in mind or in your prayers the people in Iraq, both Americans and Iraqis. NPR reported this morning that Christians in Iraq were afraid to go to church, affirming my conviction that irony is one of the major forces of human history.
Fortunately, there are more powerful things than force. We celebrate one of them today, whether we welcome the Christchild, or just welcome the family of humanity, as Charles Dickens did through Ebenezer Scrooge.
Merry Christmas, y'all!
