To the editor of THE EAGLE:

Even though my beliefs are different, I am happy when a true Christian wishes me Merry Christmas. I know that he or she believes in helping the needy and wants a living wage for all. And he or she probably realizes, as my muse and jester Jon Stewart recently illustrated on The Daily Show, that neither Santa Claus or Jesus was pale-skinned with blue eyes. Also, that a fake war on Christmas is a great way to mask the shocking inequalities that are ruining our way of life as a real democracy with opportunity for all.

May your bliss be deep and abiding, may it extend to all seasons.
