"The mop and bucket" does not sound like a bad idea, considering the amount of cleaning up needed in Springfield right now. As you indicate, the other stuff is an attempt to reduce the effect of the true symbols placed there.

You guys are lame. What makes a holiday 'fake' or 'real'?

Just another instance of the War on Festivus

I for one think this is great, as it shows the power of religious diversity in this country. There's no reason why Festivus shouldn't be added to the Christian holiday of Saturnalia, oh, I mean Christmas.

Just a coincidence that the two holidays line up, right?

EDITOR'S NOTE: OBVIOUSLY, THE INDIVIDUAL WHO POSTED THE ABOVE COMMENT IS IN SEARCH OF THE KIND OF DEBAUCHERY THAT LED TO THE FALL OF THE ROMAN EMPIRE. THANKFULLY, THIS "EXPERT" ON REVISIONIST HISTORY IS A LONELY INDIVIDUAL WHO WANTS TO CORRUPT A SEASON WHICH IS BASED UPON LOVE FOR OUR FELLOW MAN AND REVERENCE FOR THE BIRTH OF JESUS CHRIST WHO CAME TO WIPE THE SLATE CLEAN FOR THOSE WHO ARE WILLING TO ACCEPT HIS MESSAGE. MY SUGGESTION TO THIS WRITER IS TO FIND A NICE DINGY STRIP CLUB NEXT CHRISTMAS AND REVEL IN THE DEBAUCHERY WHICH SATURNALIA REPRESENTED.

I WON'T HONOR THESE COMMENTS BY SAYING THEY ARE OFFENSIVE TO THOSE OF US WHO CELEBRATE CHRISTMAS AS THE BIRTH OF MANKIND'S SAVIOR. BUT IT'S A FREE WORLD AND MOST AMERICANS WILL CELEBRATE THE BIRTH OF CHRIST AS IT WAS MEANT TO BE CELEBRATED, WHILE THE WRITER CAN WALLOW IN HIS OWN FILTH AND TELL THE WORLD ABOUT IT.

SO, MERRY CHRISTMAS, "ECONOMIC GEOGRAPHY" AND HAVE A BLESSED NEW YEAR.
