On Christmas

The sad truth is that Christmas is for kids. At least with the way Americans do it. It has become all about the loot, with very little “goodwill to all” that I seem to remember. Illusion perhaps, but I recall a broader focus. Of course, I also recall we were mercenary little suckers with plenty of Matt Mason space hardware, Hot Wheels, Tonka Toys, and even a pair of M-16s. Mattel had to love us.
