I'm seriously thinking of dropping out of the human race and becoming something better... like a monkey, a dog, a cat, or whatever. I listened to people this week complain that people are saying "Happy Holidays" instead of "Merry Christmas" or "Merry Christmas" instead of "Happy Holidays." Some kid somewhere on a bus got beat up for saying "Happy Hanukkah." Has the whole world gone nuts? I consider myself a (not very good) Christian and I will wish you a Merry Christmas and the powers that be will not tell me I can't say that. However, when I wish you that, it does not mean I am trying to convert you. If you are Jewish and wish me Happy Hanukkah, I am grateful to you for including me in your celebration. If you are atheist or whatever and you decide to tell me Happy Holidays or Happy New Year, I am thankful that you think enough of me to tell me anything. If you are Muslim or Buddhist or Hindu or whatever else and you give me a greeting of whatever kind, I will take it in the spirt it is given and thank you for it. When the heck did it become a political statement to give somebody a greeting? I am sick and tired of people telling me what I should and should not say. I am all for political correctness up to a point, but since when did a pleasant wish become an insult? Don't people have better fights to fight than that?
