And so this is Christmas, and what have you done. I bet it’s not as much as the subject today. Keeping a running tally on every person in the world, running a large community of what appear to be indentured labour, somehow managing to traverse the globe in a single night, while stopping at every place of residence, and let’s not get started on the breaking and entering. Where does Santa come from? what is the deal with the sleigh and the reindeer? does he have a passport? Why didn’t he bring me that model train set I wanted when I was 8? How did it come to this?
