So, now we can put aside the stupid worry about offending anyone by wishing them a "Merry Christmas" or a "Happy Chanuka," We really need to get a handle on the establishment cause of the constitution. Just because there is a Nativity Scene or a Menorah on public property for a couple of weeks, does not mean the govenrment is establishing a religion. Let's grow up already, and stop the nonsense every December.

I've been somewhere about NYC every year for the past 5 years. I'm finishing school down in Florida right now and I am really bummed that I was not there. Things just are not the same ... Happy New Year!!!

What do they do, just recycle this same, tired story year after year?

Just change a few facts and the date and, VOILA!-a ready-to-print story for New Year's day.

The Post had people on the front cover showing how they wore diapers because there were no public toilets. Plus if you leave your spot go to the bathroom you can't get back in the cattle herd. Sounds like a fun time for all.
