Merry Christmas, Everyone

As we roll into the holidays, TTAC is signing off for a four-day weekend and its writers are enjoying some much needed rest with family and friends. As much as we love to pour our hearts into this little corner of the web, we also need to share those hearts with other loves in our lives. So, because of that, TTAC can wait for a few days.

But before we go, I’d like to thank you — the writers, the readers, and everyone else that makes this possible — for an excellent year. Enjoy your holidays safely. We’d really like to see you come back here in 2017 in one piece.

In the meantime, and in the spirit of the season, let’s try something.

Christmas is about giving. It’s about giving to those we love. It’s equally about giving to those we don’t know, or extending an olive branch to those with which we clash. So, here’s our Christmas game: say something nice about one commenter you come to virtual blows with on a regular basis throughout the year. TTAC, I think, is a place where nearly all views can be represented. We may disagree, but we should at least respect each other. Plus, if we were all the same, it would be a bit boring, no?

We’ll be back on December 27th.

Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays.

    Scott ; . Some here simply don't have a really good grasp of proper English use, sorry if that grinds your _last_ F-ing nerve, I feel the same way about bullshit ' patina ' junk but it is what it is . . I slept late (7AM) and now have a houseful of happy Teenage boys enjoying their Christmas, sweeping up, mopping the floors, washing clothes and generally making things tidy as they know that this nice house doesn't come without effort . . Oddly (or maybe not) the U.S.P.S. is working to - day so Anton had to leave to work all day whilst we're gobbling up Turkey, Ham, greens, all the usual things found in Southern/Black American households . . We'll save him a plate. . The kitchen is busy already, a few Women have come by, more to follow as the day goes on . . Here in Sunny Southern California we usually have smoggy Christmas' but it has rained four days including some real live " Gully Washers " imported from the Mid-West so we'll have a _CLEAN_ and dust free Holiday if not a white one =8-) . . -Nate
