“How the Grinch Stole Christmas”, possibly the greatest childrens story ever written. Dr. Seuss had a way of getting a message across (think “the lorax” or “the sneetches”). Anyway, I heard on NPR the other day that the reason he wrote “the Grinch” was because of the commercialization of Christmas. He was totally right.

I left the mall today and passed a man with a sign that said “will work for food”. Seeing this after I spent hundreds of dollars on things people don’t need really, I felt really small. I hope he has a warm place to sleep tonight.
