Boxing Day (204.6)
Merry Christmas! Does anyone else think the flurry of press coverage this week about a passenger who got booted off a flight at LaGuardia Airport for flipping out after one too many people wished him a "Merry Christmas" is nonsense? Most stories about passenger incidents include a name. Especially since this one seems to have started with the New York Post, I wouldn't be surprised if it were a "War on Christmas" hack job.

As has become tradition over the last several years, I joined acappellasinger for the stereotypical Jewish Christmas of Chinese food and movies. I was really impressed with both "Into the Woods" and "Annie!" I'll be writing reviews soon. Since they're both adaptations of stage musicals, I might even work them both into a single article. Not sure yet.

Yesterday's Boxing Day brunch was a return to tradition; it's something I've done a few times, but not in a while. I think. Just a few friends, including dansr's lovely little girl! Miss Rowan is really a gem, and of course the dogs love her.

Speaking of dogs, leaving shortly with Penny for another visit with Carter. Their first visit went very well, and I'm optimistic he'll be able to join our family soon!

Two dogs! Rex is moving to Scotland soon. :-) He's just been a temporary houseguest, though it was for longer than we'd envisioned at first.

I believe that the story is badly-contrived urban legend.

I'm tired of the War on Christmas myth. It's just a distraction from more important issues.
