  1. At least they don’t call it something ending with “gate”. I’m really tired of hearing “gate” so the grinch isn’t too bad – yet. It’s still kind of funny. Maybe next year it will get a little more annoying.

  2. Chuck – Almost assuredly there were some bad Samaritans. They were/are human beings like you and I, after all.

    I’m inspired to start up a street gang called The Grinches who specifically only commit acts on or around Christmastime, and only acts that come in direct conflict with the spirit of the holidays. It’s a war on Christmas! Just try and stop us, Bill O’Reilly.
